Campsites are tucked into the hillside overlooking Russell Pond, a popular boating and fishing site (due in part to regular fish stocking by the State Fish and Game Department). This campground has flush toilets, hot showers, both RV and tent sites, and features a beautiful amphitheater with free interpretive nature programs on summer Saturday evenings.
Note: Please be aware that Russell Pond Campground is for the rest of the season for some much needed road repair work. We're sure campers will be thrilled when they see the results next spring!
