It doesn’t even matter where you stay at Purtis Creek because you’ll be on the water all day, right? Ya gotta rest your head somewhere though, so here’s the campsite DL: nature buffs can camp in the buff at any of the 14 primitive sites (hike-in .65 miles) available east of the main campground. Five walk-in sites (hike-in 10-15 yards) are desirable if you’re looking for a little more solitude, and if the walk-in sites aren’t available, chances are you’ll opt for one of 59 sites in the main park campground that offer water/electric, a picnic table, 3+ mi. of nearby hiking and biking trails, and best of all: lakefront props!

Watch out for the raccoons. Lots of them. Keep food locked up and it's all ok.
