Camping

Family camping

The family campground is located between the park office and Somerset Place. Thirteen campsites, each with a picnic table and grill, are well-suited for tents and trailers. Water and restrooms with showers are nearby.

The edge of a cypress/sweetgum forest furnishes a shaded area for some of the campsites while others are located in an open, grassy meadow.

Group camping

The campground is surrounded by a forested area and has easy access to Lake Phelps via a 740-foot boardwalk trail. Primitive camping facilities include tent pads, a fire ring, vault toilet and potable water.

IMPORTANT: Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to preview photos of campsites; check availability and fees; and find out whether a specific site is handicap accessible; has access to water, showers, or restrooms; has electric hookup; and other important information.
