Rock Creek Group Camp is the closest campground to Veteran’s Lake, and is an ideal access point for fishing, hiking, mineral springs and nearby Rock Creek.
Swimming opportunities abound, with streams and springs dotting the park landscape. Nearby hiking trails weave along these streams–passing through cool rushing waterfalls–and leading to mineral water and freshwater springs. Wildlife photographers can look out for the red fox, turkey, dear and opossum.
One group site is available at Rock Creek, and it’s open year-round. These are non-electrical sites that are designed for tent camping, but small RVs can be accommodated.
