Nestled among long-limbed oak trees on the “mainland” side of the park sit 82 campsites in the Wooded Area Loop Campground. Twenty five of those are walk-in sites for tent campers only; you’ll have to park about 150 yards away from where’ll you’ll set up camp. The upside? Greater privacy, and your site will still be equipped with a picnic table and grill, with running water nearby. The other 57 traditional campsites each contain water and electric hookups, plus the standard picnic table and fire ring.
