Description

Some people come to Lake Bob to ‘escape from it all. ’ Then some people look at those ‘escapists,’ all next to each other with their electricity and water and tables (tables! pshaw!) and scoff at them, then walk straight into the woods.

Some people come to Lake Bob to ‘escape from it all.’ Then some people look at those ‘escapists,’ all next to each other with their electricity and water and tables (tables! pshaw!) and scoff at them, then walk straight into the woods. If you’re in the second category, or even if you refrain from scoffing but want a more secluded and stripped-down experience, then take a short (<1 mile) hike from the parking lot and embrace nature and seclusion. You’ll have a roughly 100-sqaure foot plot of flat land and that’s all. Reservations and ground fires are not allowed, but the tradeoff is that these sites are much cheaper.

Had a blast this past weekend and plan to go back. Definitely will plan on reserving a spot by the water. Stayed at site #49 and was close to restrooms. Super quiet at night and lots of shade during the day with all the trees. Dogs aren't allowed in public swimming area FYI, which is understandable. We're able to find a small trail that led to an area they could play by the water.

One of my favorite state parks. The trails are well paced and well marked. I have stayed in several number campsites in both areas, 42 and 43 worked great for me. The best is the primitive site down from the trout pond. The site is off the trail and just a short hike from the pond. The trails are clear and wide. There are nice hills and a few rocky spots. Easy hike for kids and the dogs.
