If you are wanting to spend a great deal of time on the river, North Shore or Witchers Cove may be your go-to as they are laid out right along the shore of the lake and have boat ramp access. Wanting to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of neighbors? Stoll Mountain, Howbert Point, Lazy Boy, Rocking Chair, and Cross Creek are all more secluded. These sites are scattered throughout the park and may sit up higher on the ridges of Eleven Mile.
The remaining 25 sites are located in the back-country and are for those that are willing to hike or boat in and out of their sites. Most sites have few trees, yet your view of the forested terrain is fantastic from any of them. Backcountry Campground and Rocky Ridge Campground are the only ones with natural shade provided by trees. If you don't plan on staying in either one of these sites, please bring forms of shade to ensure both you and your pet stays cool.
All of these sites are open during the peak season (May-September); however, Rocky Ridge (B-E only), North Shore D, and Stoll Mountain West are closed between October and May. All toilets, showers, and laundry areas are also closed during the down season.
Hiking, fishing, water recreation (sailing, tubing, swimming, windsurfing, kayaking, etc.), wildlife watching, and hunting make up some of the great outdoor activities available at this State Park. Your pooch is welcome to come along on the trip with you! Please be sure that they are on a leash no longer than 6 feet at all times and that you clean up after them. As wildlife is prevalant in the area, pay mind that your doggo is always close by your side and doesn't disturb the animals in their natural habitat.
