    BACKCOUNTRY CAMPSITES are located on the park's interior lakes and offer a more remote and secluded camping experience. They have fewer amenities, consisting of fire rings, an outdoor privy, and some have a bear pole for safe food storage. These sites first require travel by private watercraft or local water taxi service to a trailhead and then hiking up to several miles to the backcountry lakes. Some campsites can be hiked to directly while others require the use of a canoe after hiking which is provided by the park and remains stationed at these remote lakes.

    The campground is considered "primitive," designed to furnish only the basic needs of the camper. The campsites consist of a cleared area, fire ring, and table. In addition, vault toilets, garbage cans, and drinking water are available. There are only individual campsites available. Campsites are spacious throughout, so the deciding factors are privacy and proximity to the lake.

    All sites are on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Highlights: Woodenfrog State Campground and Day- Use Area is beautiful and rustic with a great swimming beach, boat ramp, and an old CCC building used for interpretive talks on a regular basis.

    The day-use area is located on a pine-covered shoreline, can accommodate large groups, and offers quiet, private sites for smaller groups.
