Carp River Campground Sites

This campground is in a quiet, rustic setting adjacent to the Carp Wild and Scenic River and is a great place to enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, or to just "get away from it all". Fish species in the campground area of the river include brook, brown and rainbow trout. The river can be accessed by one of the sets of stairs constructed along the riverbank. Link to Campground Map.
