2 Meeks Bay Resort and Marina

Meeks Bay Resort and Marina

If you are looking for more amenities and a summer camp or resort type of atmosphere, Meeks Bay Resort and Marina is the perfect choice. Along the waterfront of Meeks Bay is a large, crescent-shaped beach with shallow water, perfect for young children. The resort backing the beach is a large-scale operation, with cabins overlooking the lake, a beachside restaurant, and a campground.

This is a large campground with spacious sites, towering pine trees, and easy access to the beach. The campground offers tent and RV sites, full hookups, some pull-through sites, and restrooms and showers. Pets are not accepted at this resort. Reservations should be made as far out as possible and are accepted in spring for the following summer, a year out.

Meeks Bay Campground

Located just down the beach from Meeks Bay Beach Resort and Marina is the small, federally operated Meeks Bay Campground. This is a much quieter and more primitive camping experience than the resort, but still set along the same fabulous stretch of beach. Sites are big and bright but generally quite close together. Large pine trees offer shade here and there, and some sites have nice views over the lake. The campground is set relatively close to the highway, so traffic noise can be a factor. Facilities include flush toilets but no showers. Sites are all back-in and do not have hookups. RV sites can typically accommodate equipment of 18 to 25 feet in length, with a few exceptions for longer units. Reservations can be made up to six months in advance.
