If it’s time to get away from it all and camp out by a beautiful lake in a natural forest setting, you’ll enjoy taking a break at Davis Lake campground where your choices for the day are boating, swimming, relaxing, or fishing.
RV’s can drive in and be hooked up to electricity (30/50 amp) and water where the landscape is a hilly, grass-covered space that includes established trees for shade, picnic tables with lanterns and fire-grills. You can also hire a covered picnic area for an extra fee. The clean restrooms have showers included and a grassy beach where campers can relax with locals who share this recreational day area.
Dog lovers are blessed with a campground that allows their pooches to come for summer fun. The rules state all woofers must be on a leash measuring six feet or less. This is a birdwatchers paradise with geese, ducks, hawks, and wildlife in the vicinity, so it's essential dogs are supervised at all times. It’s also up to their owners to pick up their waste and provide litter bags.
The grounds are nicely maintained, offering a welcoming vision for travelers wanting to bed down for the night in a clean and safe lakeside environment. There are around 68 tent and RV gravel and grass sites with a boat ramp for access to the lake and piers where anglers can haul in black bass and walleye. A playground keeps the kids smiling while on-site hosts ensure all campers have a happy stay.
The camp is open all year and is a dream escape for hikers with plenty of trails to explore. The Tanglefoot Trail is within five miles of the camp and is a majestic trek for cyclists and walkers who are wowed by the scenery as it takes you on a journey through flower-filled meadows, forests with places to sit a spell and wooden bridges that add to the trail enchantment.
Daredevils can look forward to the Chickasaw OVH Trail - a 12 mile drive through rugged terrain and forest while the town of New Houlka is a testament to Chickasaw history and culture.
