Sites at Sayres are small, it is recommended you go take a look first if your are planning to bring in a trailer, so you can check out the sites and the suitability of your vehicle for the road.

Bring your own "Clean Trip Kit."  A clean trip kit includes hand sanitizer, gloves and toilet paper

Campers are expected to carry out their own garbage, "Pack it in, Pack it out"

Maximum 6 people per single site, 12 people per double site, includes kids and visitors

Updates for Sayres Lake 2021

Sayres Lake has changed from a fully motorized campsite to a partially motorized campsite.  Sayres is a small packed-in type campsite and due to safety concerns, noise, and dust, ATV's and off road vehicle traffic will no longer be allowed in the lower campsite/lake area.

If you wish to use your ATV or off road vehicles while camping at Sayres you will be able to park it at the parking area by the Host site.  You will not be able to drive in/out of your campsite, with the exception of the upper sites #32-38.

For example: If you are registered in the lower campsite/lake area, (with the exception of the upper sites #32-#38) driving your ATV or off road vehicle in/out of your site is NOT permitted.  All ATV's and off road vehicles must be trailered in/out of the lower campsite area at all times during your stay.  Most sites cannot accommodate for extra or trailer parking. There is parking for your trailered ATV or off road vehicle located near the host site.

Off road vehicle traffic will be allowed at the upper sites #32-38, but not passed that point into the main camping area.

These changes are to address safety concerns.  Rocky Point and Rock Creek campsites are in the same area and will remain fully motorized.
