Harrison Bay State Park Campgrounds
A local favorite, Harrison Bay State Park is the ultimate destination for boaters, kayakers, SUPs, swimmers, and – you guessed it – campers! Set up your home away from home next to the bay with insane water views and access to killer amenities – a swimming pool, restrooms, a restaurant, and even a market.

On the West side of Harrison Bay, Chester Frost Park has a sweet setup for camping lakeside. With dock access, equipment rentals, and a white-sand beach, you won’t want to miss this local highlight – it’s just 30 minutes from home.
Raccoon Mountain Caverns & Campground
Looking to camp but don’t have the essentials? Check out this full-blown glamping experience in a rustic cabin at Racoon Mountain. Complete with separate bedroom spaces, a full bathroom, flat screen TVs, and linens, this is camping at its finest. When not hanging out near your decked-out “campsite,” explore the caverns and lookout points along scenic walking trails.
Prentice Cooper State Forest
Just 35 minutes from Legends at White Oak, this is one of the prettiest camping spots in town. Prentice Cooper has that backcountry feel with the room to spread out away from other visitors. Fun perks like a shooting range and off-roading trails make for the perfect adrenaline-packed campsite getaway.
