Dent Acres

Dent Acres campground is an excellent location for boaters, fishermen, hunters, hikers, wildlife watching, as well as quiet relaxation.  There is a boat ramp for access to the reservoir, multiple trails for hiking, and thousands of surrounding acres of public lands for the hunter.

Dent Acres features 49 pull through camping sites and one back-in only site.  All of the sites are equipped with water and 50 amp electricity hookups as well as sewage hookups, a fire pit and a covered picnic table.  The campground can accommodate everything from tent camping to large RVs.  The campground offers flush toilets and shower rooms.  Adjacent to the campground is a playground and plenty of open space for activities.  Some other amenities include fish cleaning station, dump station, trails, a 2-lane boat ramp, and a tie-up dock during the main season.  Dent Acres is the perfect place to bring the family for the weekend to camp or to recreate at.

The Sun Shelter is the perfect place to have parties, or just to get together with friends and family.  The shelter has electricity, lighting, water, grills, and a number of picnic tables to accommodate all of your guests (up to 75 people).  The sun shelter is reservable during the summer months.
