This year-round camping facility offers 103 sites suitable for use by tents or RV's. There are also five on-site cabins to accommodate groups of various sizes.

Lake Thompson Recreation Area offers many recreational activities to provide fun for the whole family. Among the park's most beloved attractions are basketball, volleyball, swimming, hiking, fishing, horseshoes, boating, and biking.
Picnic areas are available on-site for campers and day-trippers. There are also bathrooms which offer showers, toilets, and fresh drinking water to help keep Fido and his family well-hydrated. Visitors to the area love the on-site amenities including a pristinely clean beach, boat ramp, fish cleaning station, and fishing pole rental facility.

Dogs are welcome at this beautiful state park but park officials require all dogs to remain on a lead at all times on the property. Though there are no posted regulations regarding park use, it is always wise to ensure Fido is up to date on vaccinations and bears the appropriate state license tag. It is unknown if poop bags are provided on-site. However, park officials do require that all owners pick up and properly dispose of all canine waste materials.
