For the more wild at heart, Auburn State Park offers a variety of primitive campsites that you can access via bike, car, or boat. Boat-in Camping at Lake Clementine offers 15 sites accessible only by boat. There is a short window of opportunity (May to September) to take advantage of this unique experience, so be sure to make plans early! There are pit toilets, picnic tables and fire rings, but no drinking water. If you are traveling down the river and want a place to stay for the night, permits are available for camping outside the designated areas from October to July.
