Camping at Beaver Creek

Joggers along road at Beaver Creek Campground, Watoga State ParkLast year, when people came to Beaver Creek for the races Saturday morning, one comment heard a number of times was, “Why, we could have camped right here!” Both races start and finish at the campground check-in station, and the big tent for the post-race lunch is right there, tooMap of Beaver Creek Campground at Watoga State Park. The thirty-four regular campsites are unreserved, and the park will allow overflow tent camping on the airstrip, making the campground a virtual village of trail runners that weekend.

Riverside Campground

This popular campground has both reserved and unreserved sites. It’s 4 miles by road from there to Park Headquarters along beautiful Island lick Run, then another 3 miles to Beaver Creek Campground. Campers can check in at either campground. Both campgrounds have showers and restrooms, dishwashing stations with hot water, and playgrounds.
