Chunky River Recreation is situated on 20 acres just East of the Town of Chunky along the State designated Scenic Stream. We have 3/4 of a mile of river frontage on the West side of the river at the beginning of what is known as the 7 mile bend, (not quite 7 miles in reality).

The Campground now has 25 sites available with water and power on each site. There is also a pavilion located near the river. No Sewer hook-ups available at the sites, however, there is a dump station located near the Trading Post.

Our Trading Post is located on the hill before entering the camp site area. Here you will find the restrooms with showers and a washer & dryer. It also offers most items needed for a camping and fishing adventure on the Chunky River as well as Gift Ideas for many occasions from The Stitch-n-post Custom Embroidery and Applique Corner and Signs of Faith Wood Shop.

Worms, Crickets, Lures and a small line of Fishing Tackle now available.  

Monday - Friday 6:00 AM - 6:00 PM  
Saturday 7:00 AM - 12:00 PM Oct. - April
Saturday 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM May - Sept.
