Big Hollow Campground
Big Hollow offers 48 campsites within the park, each only a short distance from the lake. A campground host is usually present during the summer months to offer assistance and Park Rangers make regular rounds through the park.
At Big Hollow Recreation Area, there are 32 full hookup sites (with on-site electric, water and sewer) within the RV campground. Each site offers ample room for a camper, truck and extra vehicle or boat trailer. Several sites are designed as "buddy sites" and can accomodate two campers for those that want to share a site with friends or family. Nearby overflow parking areas accommodate additional vehicles for family members or guests. A central water and sewer dump station and modern restroom/shower house are also available.

Primitive (Tent) Campground
For those wanting to "rough it" a little more, 16 primitive campsites are carved right into the mature oak-hickory forest at Big Hollow. Ample space between the sites helps maintain the solitude of each site. For those really wanting to get away from it all, some sites can only be reached via a short hike down an access trail.
