This peaceful, all primitive campground offers a great retreat from city life and technology. Many repeat visitors return for the quiet surroundings and walk-in access to trails for hiking as well as Dow Lake for swimming, boating, and fishing. Campsites are flat and spacious for tents, campers, or RVs. There are no sites with electric or water hook-ups; however, there are water spigots spaced throughout the campground, as well as a dump station at the entrance to the campground. *Non-overnight guests can use the dump station for a $15 fee.

We offer the following:

  •  57 primitive camping sites with fire pits and picnic tables.  NO RESERVATIONS ARE TAKEN—first come, first serve.

  • Two Camper Cabins – each has padded bunk beds to sleep four and a 48-quart cooler.  You must bring your own lighting and bedding.  RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED.

  • Group camp (maximum 150 guests) – separate entrance, water spigot, and outhouse.  Perfect for scouting and church groups, family reunions.  RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED.

  • Direct access to gorgeous trails and a beautiful lake for hiking, biking, swimming, boating, and fishing.
