The Pocket Recreation Area is open from April 1 - October 31.

Families camping can enjoy the vibrant spring colors of mountain laurel, as well as the brilliant fall color mix provided by mixed hardwoods.

Campsites are for one family or 5 adults. Site must be occupied for the first night of stay. Maximum two vehicles per campsite. 14-day limit. Dogs must be leashed at all times. Alcohol is prohibited in the entire Pocket Recreation Area.
