Camping at Lake Logan

Lake Logan offer seven unique campsites for car camping.  

Each site* has a campfire area, picnic table, and access to a toilet and water for cooking (short walk). Your campsite rental allows up to four (4) people*, two (2) tents, and two (2) standard vehicles and lake / hiking trails access during your stay. For an additional fee, you may increase the capacity for your campsite.

*The paddle-in site does not have a picnic table or access to fresh water/toilet.

We also offer a camping dinner menu if you want to forego some of the campfire cooking.
