Back Country Camping

Lory has six back country campsites. All six campsites are a minimum 1 hour hike from the nearest parking lot. All campsites are now available for reservations. Remember that Lory DOES NOT ALLOW CAMP FIRES, however camp stoves are okay. All campsites are primitive and you must pack in and out all necessary items, including water.

    Campsite reservations may be made by calling 1-800-244-5613​ or by reserving online

    Camping at Lory State Park is in the back country only, meaning there are no campgrounds, car camping or RV camping available. These primitive sites can be accessed by at least a 2-mile, one-way hike. The back country sites are a good training ground for Scouts and other groups who want to train for longer backpacking and camping trips. There is no water, restrooms or tent pads at these sites and fires are prohibited. Small camp stoves are permitted. Call the park at (970) 493-1623 for back country camping information.
