Fishing friendly campgrounds

Recommended Posts

I've been looking for campgrounds in the mid south where you can beach your boat right near your campsite and leave it there for days.    It's really nice to get up pre dawn and walk right down to your boat to begin fishing.   It's also nice to be able to go out for a couple hours at night without having to launch a boat.   

My favorite place so far is Piney Grove campground on Bay Springs Lake, MS.

Beautiful campground with sites all along the shoreline.   I really love Bay Spring Lake too.  it has wild, sandy shoreline all the way around it.  It has excellent spotted bass fishing and incredible crappies.. see the photo below...

Does anyone else have favorite spot where you can camp and fish like that ?

There is a place north of me, Frank Jackson state park in Alabama. Nice campground on a lake. Have not camped or fished there yet.

Been wanting to, just never fell into place yet...

Plenty of good areas like that here in Florida.There's one up in N Ga. I fished and camped at .Conasauga lake in the Cohutta Wilderness.If you want a remote lake this is the one! There's a good trout stream( Jack's river) in the same general area also.This is way back in the mountains.The road up there used to be pretty rough.It would be slow going esp. With a boat and trailer.

There are numerous ones here in Va., some of those however you run a greater risk of having things taken from you during the warmer months, however, my favorite one is Lake Moomaw, in the pictures below, one contains a shot of the beaching area, that is when they drain the lake there is one, and above you can see part of the campground, it's an absolutely beautiful lake tucked up in the mountains with several different kinds of species you can fish for, of course my favorite is LMB.
