Campground Around Motley

4 posts in this topic

Any suggestions for a public campground around Motley? There are quite a few private ones, but it seems the going rate is around $45/night, which is way more than I want to spend for a tent spot.

Has anyone ever stayed at Rock Lake Campground in the Pillsbury State Forest?

How about Dower Lake Recreational Area in Staples?

Thanks!

Several years ago I drove through the Rock Lake campground and it looked pretty nice. Some large pine trees to camp under. I have not stayed there however, I know somebody who does and he likes it.

Sounds like it would worth a shot. Always fun to a little exploring.

We stayed at Rock Lake a couple years ago. We had an OK site and the place was full. Only thing I really remember is that someone sunk a couple picnic tables in deep water at the beach and I could stand and have my head out of the water. There were a few bigger boats on the lake but I think they were tubing more than fishing.

There used to be a KOA on Fishtrap but it has gone through a couple ownerships and the overnight cost has gone way up. My inlaws used to have a spot just down the road and we would go up there to shower.
