The Dolly Copp Campground, with over 170 campsites, is located conveniently across the river from the Picnic Area.

    Facilities:

    Originally constructed in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the pavilion was reconstructed in 1996 using some of the original timbers and new timbers harvested from trees planted by the same 1936 CCC crew. The pavilion has eight accessible picnic tables, a large stone fireplace and a flag stone floor. Two charcoal grills are available next to the pavilion. The Dolly Copp Picnic Area has a dumpster, running water, and a flush toilet.
