Lake Camanche Camping

Lake Camanche tent camping

You can book your campsites online choosing from more than 550 tent camping sites spread over the North and South Shores. Campsite amenities include bbqs. water, picnic tables, hot showers, laundry facilities and restrooms. Primitive sites usually have no amenities like water, picnic tables or restrooms close by.

If you’re new to camping, Lake Camanche has a Rent My Tent program which provides a premium tent so you don’t have to deal with the fuss of getting set up, or purchasing equipment you may use only once or twice a year. A two night minimum reservation is required and extra services are available for higher pricing.
