Camping

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT AMENITIES:

Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to see photos of campsites; check availability and fees; find out whether a specific site is wheelchair accessible, has access to water, bathouses or pit toilets, or has electric hookup; and learn other important information.

 

Tent and trailer 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.

Some campsites can accommodate RVs. Hookups and dump station are not provided. Check the reservations website for more details.

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.

Campers are allowed 24-hour access to the park. Please check with the park office during office hours for the after-hours emergency phone number.

 

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.
