Camping at Philpott Lake

Camping, Waterfront

Philpott Lake offers a wide range of camping with primitive sites, including Deer Island which is only accessible by water, to full-hook up sites. Enjoy a wide spectrum of amenities - picnic shelters, flush toilets, showers, outdoor grills, water fountains, an amphitheater with campfire ring and basketball goal. There's one thing missing - You. If you're lucky, you'll experience nature at a level you never imagined. You may see wildlife such as the gray fox taking care of its young or a bear may be going on a daily stroll - this is nature up close and personal. Reservations require a 2 day notice and must be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service.
