5 Boat-In Campgrounds For A Quieter Camping Experience

These boat-in campgrounds are worth the trip! Only reachable by boat, you’ll need to rent or have your own boat to get there. But remember…camping on the water means you’ll most definitely feel the chill at night, so come prepared!

Jackson Point Boat-in Campground, CA

Jackson Point lies along the remote Jackson Meadow Reservoir, an area of Lake Tahoe backcountry. This site has a lot to offer if you’re looking for some exploration & adventure!

Crystal Boat-in Campsite, CO

Set in a remote cove in the mouth of this beautiful creek, Crystal only allows for one small group of campers at a time. The ultimate spot for solitude! Recommended for experienced boaters.

White Oak Boat-in Campground, KY

This location is made up of a total of 51 sites along shorelines of the Laurel River Lake. Well-trafficked and patrolled, White Oak is a great option for those new to boat-in camping.

Big Cove Boat-in Campgrounds, OR

A larger site with less amenities, Big Cove is more of a rustic experience. During peak season this site can fill up, but hold out for fall and you could have the place to yourself!

Jarvies Family Boat-in, UT

Located in Flaming Gorge Reservoir, in Jarvies Canyon, this site sits at 6,040 feet. Jarvis offers a bit more luxury – all sites are reservable and have access to toilets – and boasts views of gorgeous pines, junipers and the famous Utah red cliffs.
