Devil’s Lake State Park has 3 public camping areas located on the north shore of the lake, and 9 group camp sites on the south shore. Each campground has different qualities that have made each of them popular with various annual campers. There are no campgrounds on the shoreline of Devil’s Lake itself.
Camping reservations are pretty much a MUST for any summer camping. Reservations can be made up to 11 months ahead of your planned stay. As you can imagine wooded electrical sites are the first to go followed by all other electrical sites. If you arrive without reservations you may still get a site if you arrive early in the week (Sun – Wed) and/or in the morning. But again it can be VERY difficult at times to camp at the park without a reservation.
