The first thing you’ll want to know is how to pronounce it: TOCK-lock. Next, you’ll want to know that Mt. Adams will loom so closely above your lakefront campsite that you’ll want to reach out and touch it. No motors are permitted here, just canoes and kayaks and tranquility. That’s why the few miles of washboard road driving make this destination sooo worth it. Bring mosquito repellent (crucial in early summer) and your trout fishing pole.

Details: 62 sites. $16 a night. Small RVs ok. Vault toilets, but bring your own drinking water or a filter.  Ten walk-in only sites. Reserve here for summer camping.
