Smith Lake Park


Can I reserve campsites at Smith Lake?

No.  All 3 of our campgrounds are  first come, first served campgrounds.  You may come early and park a vehicle or pitch a tent on a site.  But you must pay for all nights that the site is occupied, whether you are present or not.

General Questions


What is the minimum length at which I can keep a bass at Smith Lake?

All bass under 18 inches must be immediately released back into the water at Smith Lake.  Bass are the main predator in the lake.  They keep the panfish from overpopulating.
