I have heard there is a private campground just outside of the park, perhaps on Longbottom Road. Has anyone stayed there or have more info about this campground?

This is from the easter before last. We did not stay. Just looking in case we couldn't keep our drinking low key. Coming out of the park at a t intersection where the left takes you back towards the interstate. Just as you make the left there is a sign in the yard on the right, this is where you register. The campgrounds is a bit down the road still on the right before a church. The bathrooms had one commode and one shower, might have been urinal too. Ladies didn't have urinal. We also checked it out for when we arrive at midnite. The camp sites were ok. There was a sink in the bathroom too. It wasn't busy but it was a cold week.

Thanks. It is nice to have a backup plan in case you get locked out of the park . . . Or, if you just can't keep the drinking under controlWink

Is this campsite still open? I have looked all over and can not find it. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place or something. Any info would be great

I don't know about a private campground, but I have used Thurman-Chatham gameland campground.

There's no toilets, you'll have to filter, boil or bring your water but it's flat, free and as far as I know, beer friendly.

This is the link, look for the camp sign at the base of Basin Ck off Longbottom Rd.
