At a Glance

Current Conditions: As of April 11, 2019 the campground is closed. Several events may result in delaying the opening date. All campgrounds at Lake Davis Recreation Area have been operated through the same management company for many years. After the Government Shutdown we learned that that management company has opted out of their Special Use Permit and will not manage those campgrounds. We anticipate an agreement with a different management company sometime in May. Campground hosts will arrive after that date and begin operations including activating the water system and general clean-up. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to our guests.
Reservations: Sites can be reserved online at  or by calling 1-877-444-6777.  The campground has about half reservation and half first come first serve.
