Bodine Field Campground is situated alongside the area’s wading river, a must-see to any Wharton State Forest Camper. However, these campsites are elusive―especially when trying to reserve a site for the weekend. And, in order to do so, you must call-up the field office to stamp your reservation.

I love Bodine Field . Great for tent camping pushed back about over a mile down a dirt road in the woods. Right on the wading river. We always end our kayak trip right at the campground. It does list on here that it has picnic tables ,but no site has them here. They have pit toilets and no toilet paper in most of them, so defiantly bring TP.

Bodine Field is my go-to camping location. The plots are typically much larger than what you are probably used to. There is a local canoe launch as well as decent access to potable water. If you are camping alone, go early in the season. It is a very attractive site for larger groups so it can get noisy in the summer months. I have met dozens of people on multiple trips and never had any issues from my neighboring campers.
