The access road leads to the park entrance that has enough room for your RVs and motor homes to maneuver once inside. Gravel and paved roads lead to the various campsites and facilities available at the park. Some sites are larger than others so it always a good idea to reserve a site in advance before setting out.
Little River Park offers RV enthusiast and outdoor camping enthusiast the opportunity to spend 14 days at a time camping on the 55 campsites dotted around the lake and woodlands.

The 25 remaining campsites are for those who like the unadulterated primitive camping experience living in tents without water or electricity hookups. The parking sites are made of both concrete in some campsites and of gravel in others. Additional amenities include two dump stations, three showers, and two boat ramps. One shelter is available for groups and has RV parking for guests. It also comes with five electric hookups to accommodate a large group of campers. The busiest time of the year in the park is from March through October.
