Campgrounds

Camping opportunities abound at Clearwater Lake. With over 390 campsites, ranging from rustic to full electric and water hook-up, you are sure to find one that is perfect for your camping experience.

We have many areas that are ideal for primitive camping. You must obtain a permit prior to any primitive camping at Clearwater Lake. This permit may be used to locate your camp group in the event of an emergency. Remember to carry out all rubbish that you bring onto the project. Permits are FREE. To obtain a permit contact the Project Office at (573) 223-7777, or print one from this website.

Campsites can be reserved through the National Recreation Reservation Service on-line at Recreation.gov or call 877-444-6777.
