Quiet Camping

Quiet on a Thursday before Labor Day 2020. Nice spot, easy walk to the lake, not so remote, 4 campgrounds close to one another.

Rough canyon, good camping

We tent camped at Rough Canyon around New Years 2010 when the lake was high. There were no other people camping. Simple campground at the end of the paved road on the edge of the lake. It’s a round gravel parking lot with sites around it. There’s a small community above the campground. Great place, great lake.

Beautiful and Friendly Locals

This place is not only beautiful from the canyon to the deer prancing through the campsite at night. The local hangout is Hookers run by and awesome family who we became friends with. We stayed two separate times on our last trip and we will definitely be back. The camping spot it beautiful also!
