Parksville Lake Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Located near Parksville Lake, this popular campground is divided by Highway 30 into an RV campground and a tent/group campground. The RV sites are well shaded and well spaced and many will accomodate large RVs. Several sites offer the opportunity for two RVs to camp close together and some are located along a small stream. The group sites are set up with tent pads around a central fire ring and picnic table area. Convenient to the Ocoee River, the Ocoee Whitewater Center (site of the 1996 Olympic Kayak events), Parksville Lake beaches and boat ramps, many miles of mountain bike/hiking trails and whitewater rafting, it’s a great central location for day trips.
