The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates and maintains four campgrounds at West Point Lake. Registered campers are entitled to the full use of campground facilities such as grills and tables, dump stations, laundries and showers.

The USACE operated campgrounds are "fee campgrounds" with resident park attendants. Many of the fee campgrounds offer boat ramps, playgrounds, ball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, and nature trails.

During the summer season, reservations are accepted at the fee campgrounds but are not required. The two marinas on the lake are privately owned and operated.

For the safety of our campers and visitors, drive through courtesy passes may be restricted when the campground is at or near full capacity.

For camping reservations phone 877-444-6777 or reserve online at Recreation.gov.
