Camping in the Muskingum Watershed

One of the best ways to experience the wonders and respite of nature is through camping. The MWCD’s many lake-based campgrounds offer a unique landscape to explore, whether you want to get away for a night or an entire season.

MWCD campgrounds offer waterfront, full hook-up, basic, and primitive sites to accommodate your specific interests as well as the option to sign up for seasonal camping. Seasonal campers can leave their camper onsite at one of our campgrounds from April 1-October 31. Learn more about seasonal camping at MWCD.
