Description

Bowman Campground is located on the banks of beautiful Bowman Lake, surrounded by a rugged landscape of rocky cliffs and scattered pine. This is a remote campground that is accessible by a rough three-mile road. There is no boat launch here, but you can bring your canoe and explore the lake and its islands.

This place definitely takes some effort to get to. Stayed here overnight with my friend and our dogs. 4 wheel drive and high clearance are a must to make it the last 5 miles. Didn't see anyone else camping and only a few cars passed on the "main road" during our entire stay. Quiet and off the grid for sure!

Gorgeous spot! We visited at the beginning of the week in early September and we were the only ones there. The road is rough and 4wd vehicle with high clearance is highly recommended. Definitely going back.
