Merchants Millpond State Park is a tent camper’s haven. There’s a fabulous family campground, and backcountry camping is also available and can be reached either by foot or canoe. Every campsite in the family campground is wooded and very private. It’s almost as though they designed the campground with tent campers in mind, although it’s suitable for RVs up to 68 feet as well. There’s a picnic area, a canoe launch, and canoe and kayak rentals. Firewood is available for sale on the honor system. Miles of hiking trails lead through amazing, diverse terrain as you explore the Merchants Millpond, Lassiter Swamp, and the rolling hills that surround them.
