Fort Tuthill County Campground
Tall ponderosa pine trees create a rustic "camping in the woods" experience and provide shade on hot summer days. Firewood and ice are available for purchase at the campground. The campground is very busy on holiday weekends and during the County Fair. Nearby attractions are Flag Extreme Adventure Course, the new county Bike Park, Archery Range, Military Museum, Model Railroad Club, Fair Grounds, Equestrian Arena and Cross Country Course, and the Pepsi Amphitheater where concerts are held regularly. Just a few miles away down Lake Mary Road, you will find fishing, water skiing, and relaxation on the beach of Upper Lake Mary. Fort Tuthill County Campground is open for both reservations and a first-come, first-serve basis.
