Millers Creek Reservoir

When driving to the campsites at Millers Creek Reservoir, come from the west along State Highway 222, taking FM1608. Don’t come in from the north along County Road 485 as that is all dirt road, and can get bumpy and muddy. Google Maps will more than likely have you come in from the north.

Red dirt mud is everywhere at Millers Creek Reservoir, particularly after it rains. Expect to track that stuff into your vehicle. Otherwise, try to get here when it’s dry.

Campsites 6-30 are all long term sites with up to 15 consecutive days. After you leave, you cannot come back after another 15 days. Campsites 1-5 are short term sites up to a maximum of 3 days. Once you leave a short term site, you cannot return after 3 more days.

Water Authority Enforcement will patrol the camping areas frequently and will take note of when they first see you, and will often place a notice on your vehicle of when you’re expected to leave.
