Hoover Campsite (Image1)

Whether you are camping, renting the adjacent Hoover Group Site, planning on boating in Detroit Lake, or just staying for the day to fish off the accessible fishing pier, Hoover Campground is a great family location with 37 sites. An interpretive trail and a viewing and fishing platform are part of the campground. Each site has a campfire ring and picnic table. Flush toilets are available at the campground and the group campground has a vault toilet. Access roads are made from compacted rock and dirt. Firewood can be purchased on-site.

Located near Highway 22, Hoover Campground gives you easy access to these activities and also allows for quick trips into the town of Detroit or short drives to nearby trailheads.
