Located within George Washington State Forest, this campground has access to the Thistledew ATV Trail (the trail is shared with horseback riders) and is popular with ATVers, although ATV use is not permitted in the campground itself. The campground has a hiking trail that leads to the beach. Thistledew Lake is known for its walleye and crappie. This is a favorite winter campground of snowmobile enthusiasts due to its proximity to neighboring snowmobile trails. (Note: The forest is open to hunters during hunting season, so take appropriate precautions if camping then.) Campsites are generously spaced and heavily wooded, providing a good amount of privacy. Pets are allowed.
