The Cove Campground Description

The Cove Campground at Timothy Lake is one of two hike in only campgrounds located on the Lake Shore (The other one is Meditation Point). It features 10 campsites and is one of the more private campgrounds on the lake due to the fact that you cannot drive a vehicle up to your site. Parking for The Cove Campground is located off the main Timothy Lake Access road between Hoodview and Pine Point campgrounds. It sits on the edge of the lake and has great access to the Timothy Lake Trail – a thirteen mile loop around the lake. Even though it is a hike in only campground, The Cove offers standard camping amenities such as picnic table, fire pits, vault toilets and potable water.

      Hi Krystal,
      The Cove has traditionally been a walk in and first come first serve campground with no reservations available. I just did a quick search, however, and it looks like they plan on turning this area into a day use only section. It is a shame because Timothy Lake is already very difficult to find a campsite at and this takes away 10 sites. You can see that info here: http://www.recreation.gov/recreationalAreaDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&facilityId=235943
      Thanks for Stopping by!
