The Hebo Lake Campground is the perfect, secluded retreat in the woods. Nestled away right in the middle of a large evergreen forest, you will find yourself surrounded by pristine nature. Bring your four-legged companion on an epic adventure traversing one of the numerous established trails in the area. On slightly less active days, take a dip in the welcoming waters of Hebo Lake, by which the campground is situated. In the evening, cook your dinner by the fire ring and watch the stars in the sky undisturbed by city lights.
The campground features 12 basic campsites, two of which can be reserved online for a price of $18 per night. All the sites are primitive, equipped with a campfire ring and a picnic table, and most of them are shaded and surrounded by tall, evergreen trees. Since they were originally meant for tent campers hiking in the area, space is limited, and there are no hookups available. However, you should be able to fit a small RV or a small trailer on the lots as well. If you are visiting with several friends or more family, there is also a group shelter available for $50 per night.
The campground is equipped with four vault toilets but does not feature showers or running water. Make sure to pack plenty of supplies since you will be staying in a remote location. In case of emergency, the small town of Hebo is a 15-minute drive away from the campground and features several stores. Just in case, pack a large supply of water and dog waste bags with you, since the latter might be hard to come by here.
Take your fur-balls for a half-mile walk around the lake, or hike Mount Hebo if you are feeling brave, but no matter what you do, be aware of the wildlife. The forests serve as a home to the local bear and bobcat populations, with occasional wolf sightings. Try to stay in larger groups when venturing further away from your shelter and always ensure that your pooch is leashed and cleaned up after.
