On the shores of a 200-acre lake, Tully Lake Campground offers a classic tent-only camping retreat with an array of modern conveniences and outdoor recreation in the shade of towering pine trees.

Before arriving, you’ll reserve a campsite either inland or on the waterfront, each with its own picnic table and fire pit with grill. Along with a centrally located bathhouse with flush toilets and coin-operated showers, firewood, fire starters, and ice are sold onsite.

Ideas for Your Visit

After pitching your tent, it’s time to explore the wonders all around. Rent a canoe or kayak to paddle up the Tully River and explore the islands and inlets on the lake, or cast a fishing line from the campground banks. Amble down sections of the 22-mile Tully Trail for glimpses of tranquil overlooks and roaring waterfalls—and, if you’re up for it, spend two days hiking the whole trail—or mountain bike the 7.5-mile loop around Long Pond. Head back and take a nap, or gather the whole family for a game of disc golf, horseshoes, volleyball, or cornhole.
