Located along the north-central part of the lake, near Mile Marker 7, this rustic campground is good if you want to get away from the large-scale, almost industrial mega-camps. That of course means fewer amenities, but you don’t have to go completely primitive. For example, campers are allowed to use the hot showers at the Seven Points Beach changing house and the coin-operated laundry at the Seven Points Campground, just a 15-minute drive away. The campground is also close to some of Raystown’s hiking trails, including the 32-mile Allegrippis Trail, which can be hiked in sections. And while you’re here, check with the visitor center for a list of overlooks located throughout the area. Hawn’s Overlook, just a 300-foot walk from the parking lot, is spectacular, especially at sunset.
