Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: USDA Forest Service

Campsite will be provided free of charge, but Hosts must provide their own living quarters; e.g. trailer or RV.


Stony Fork Campground combines the beauty and tranquility of outdoors, this 51 site campground offers a peaceful setting for those looking to relax and those looking for outdoor adventure. Stony Fork is in a natural forest setting at the foot of Big Walker Mountain and adjacent to the Big Walker Scenic Byway. The East Fork of Stony Fork Creek winds through the campground and provides water play and trout fishing. A one-mile nature trail will take campers through stands of pine and hardwoods, while the campground loop road itself is popular with walkers. For the more experienced hiker, Seven Sisters Trail leads from the campground to the top of Little Walker Mountain and back to the Scenic Byway. With nearby hiking and interpretive trails, Stony Fork campground is a perfect choice for a volunteer who wants a beautiful mountain setting while also having the convenience of cell coverage and a full service town nearby. The campground host sites offer water, 50 AMP electric service, and sewer hookup. One host will be provided with a landline phone and fax machine for communication and receiving reservation updates. Satellite TV is available if you have your own service.
