Activity at Spruce Run centers around the water – swimming, fishing, and boating in the 1,290 acre reservoir. Coupled with expansive picnicking sites, this makes for a relaxed and scenic camping trip.

There are 67 tent and trailer sites here, open from April 1 to Oct 31. You'll have access to fire rings, picnic tables, showers, and toilets from these sites, as well. There are three shelters, in addition, and six picnic areas, which have tables, charcoal grills, and restrooms.

When you're not kicking back by the grill, there are lots of activities on the water to choose from (swimming, boating, fishing), as well as some leisurely hiking on the Highlands Millennium Trail.

Come back in the winter for cross-country skiing, ice fishing, and ice boating.
