Very nice campground, especially by the water.

Book sites by the water in advance.

Laurel Recreation Area on Rough River Lake has three separate campgrounds that run along side the road with the boatramp between the second and third areas.

In the very first campground the sites along the road to me are not good if you have kids or dogs due to road traffic.

The “wood” side…

  • The boatramp
  • The map
  • The gate which is only occupied  at certain times , otherwise you go to the host site
