The best camping near Rocky Fork State Park guide

Overview

About

Pack your camera and some extra batteries, because gorges, caves, and weaving streams make Rocky Fork State Park truly a sight to behold. Bring that trusty fishing rod too, where all types of fish from bluegill to white bass will be sure to make your mouth water come meal time. Two large beaches and 800 ft of lakeside access makes this the place to perfect your sand-castle building skills. Volleyball and basketball courts mean you can hone in on your game. The trails are short here, but since one is a loop, consider it your next track field as well.
