Description

At Lake Keomah State Park, there are 63 campsites available, 37 of which include electrical hookups. This Fido-friendly facility has showers, trailer dump stations, and flush toilets. You can reserve most sites, but some are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Enjoy summertime activities like fishing, boating, biking, and swimming when you visit this 366-acre property. The park is also open in the winter if you want to try your hand at snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing.

The campground is nestled in a wooded area on the western side of the lake. Some of the spots are near the shore. Once you get set up with your tent or RV, head over to one of the boat ramps and launch out into the water, but note the park only permits electric motors here. Spend some time fishing for bass, catfish, and crappie and watch for wildlife like great blue heron from your watercraft or the land. Prefer to spend time in the water instead of on it? You'll find an unsupervised swimming beach just north of one of the launch areas where you can cool off on hot summer days. 

Is your loveable hound a landlubber? They'll love the furrific walking path that loops around the park and goes through Keomah Village. Take Keomah Lake Trail through the woods and along the shoreline, and listen for bullfrogs and watch for other resident wildlife on your trek. The views here are especially stunning in the fall. In winter, use the same route to go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. 

The best part? You can bring your furry pal with you for your camping trip! The park allows leashed pets as long as you supervise them at all times. Remember to scoop all their poop and dispose of it properly.

You can camp year-round at Keomah State Park, but some amenities, like the showers and flush toilets, are not available during the winter. Fees vary depending on your reserved spot. Tent-only and standard non-electric sites are $6 per night; electric sites are $11 per night, and double campsites are $22 per night.
