The Shawnee National Forest offers a variety of camping experiences ranging from primitive backpacking to a developed campground equipped with showers and electrical sites. Most campgrounds & picnic areas are located near lakes or areas of exceptional beauty. Hiking, fishing and sightseeing are but a few of the recreational opportunities to be found nearby.
The Shawnee National Forest does not provide rental cabins, canoes or horses. However, there are private vendors for many of these services in the area. For information contact the local tourism bureau or chamber of commerce.
