Camping at Crowders Mountain

About the Park: Climb rugged peaks rising 800 feet above the surrounding countryside and watch raptors soar in the wind currents. Rocky ledges and outcrops are the perfect seats from which to view the panorama below. The park itself is 5,096 acres. Travel park trails for a closer look at the highland environment. Experienced rock climbers will enjoy the challenges of Crowders Mountain. Climbing is permitted in designated areas only and all climbers must register according to park regulations. Basic rock climbing safety equipment and techniques must be used at all times.

Facilities: Parking, pathways, restrooms, and the two covered shelters in the picnic area are all accessible by wheelchair. There is also a recently constructed accessible fishing pier on the lake and the park's visitor center is barrier-free.

Camping: When you've finished exploring for the day, settle in for a long night's sleep. Located approximately one mile from the park office are secluded areas for camping — areas so private there's often not another person in sight. Both campgrounds are reached by trail and all supplies must be packed to the campsites.

Backcountry Family Camping: A one-mile trail leads to the forested camping area where each campsite has a grill and tent pad and a picnic table. Drinking water and pit toilets are provided.

Backcountry Group Camping: Larger groups will enjoy fellowship in the group camping area. Each of the six group sites will accommodate up to 15 people. Camping areas include a fire circle for cooking and campfire tales, as well as two picnic tables per site. Pit toilets and water are located nearby.
