Camping opportunities can be found at most of the state parks in the area. The parks provide improved sites that include tent and camper pads, picnic tables, and fire rings. Most also provide shower and bathroom facilities. Some parks now offer electricity too.
There are plenty of unimproved camping opportunities on state forest land. We provide no designated campsites except at the 12 Mile and Dyer equine camping areas. We have three categories of camping: motorized, primitive, and group. All require a free permit except when primitive camping for only one night at a site.
