Wall Tent Campsite

Whether you are trying re-live your days at summer camp or take a little of the “rough” out of roughing it, DeSoto State Park’s Wall Tent Primitive Campsite might be what you’re looking for.

Site is located in the Primitive Campground.

The 12 foot by 10 foot Diamond Brand Wall Tent is set atop a 20 foot long wooden deck.  Bring your own air mattress, cot, or sleeping pad.  The walk-in campsite has a small, two-vehicle parking area, ground grill/fire ring and a small picnic table. A vaulted toilet, picnic tables, trashcans, picnic shelter, and a water faucet are centrally located in the campground a short walk from the wall tent site. Campers are allowed access to the Improved Campground (approx. 1 mile away) to use comfort stations, showers, flush toilets, & laundry room.
