Camping at Spring Creek Lake Dispersed Area

While much more trashy than its developed campground counterpart across the lake, this area offers the more rustic-style of camping along the lake shore. You can expect more bugs here, including mosquitoes and gnats, and more raccoons rummaging through your trash and camping stuff. There are also lots of birds going after the bugs with the added benefit of hearing them chirp and cackle all day long.

There are no trash cans on this side, meaning you have to pack out all your trash. The ground here is rutted and bumpy from folks driving through here in muddy conditions.

Otherwise, if you like this style of camping, it’s here. This is also a place to set up if the developed side is full.
