Motorized camping is permitted at eight designated locations throughout the Rothrock State Forest. These sites provide for off road parking, a campfire, and a picnic table. Camping permits required for these sites are available from the District Office.
Backpackers may camp overnight anywhere except in designated Natural Areas, within 200 feet of a forest road, within 25 feet of a trail, or within 100 feet of a stream or any open water. Permits are required if camping more than one (1) night. Overnight campers are still encouraged to register with the District Office.
