I will be heading up to Strawberry this weekend for an overnighter. Everything I have been able to find about camping up there is with trailers. I will be in the Mud Creek/ Haws point area. Are there any areas around there for tent campers? Do I need to reserve a spot like the improved camp grounds?

Depending on what time and day you are getting there. Clyde creek and mud creek are nice areas to camp but It can be a little bit of a drive to get to the lake and it gets very crowded. We went up on a saturday morning in early June and couldn't find a spot in mud creek ended up finding a spot in clyde creek in a meadow with probably ten other groups.

I may be heading up Friday after work. So it sounds like you can just head up and find a spot and set up?

There are a couple developed campgrounds near the lake. Everywhere else is open camping (trailer/tent or whatever). I like camping in the trees, but that puts me farther from the lake. Depends on what you're after.

clyde creek and mud creek are all primitive camping. So yep just find a spot and setup! Be sure to take a drive all the way to the top of clyde creek there is a great view from the top of strawberry ridge

Clyde Creek has very few options, but Mud has tons and a few really large meadows. some morons think they can take teh whole meadow so they spread every vehicles way out there; feel free to move on in. Getting their late on a weekend may be tough. Mud Creek si also great if you have a light boat that can be launched on a dirt launch ramp it is only about a 1/2 mile drive from the camping area to teh dirt ramp. That is how we do it every year and love it; headed up next weekend.

Hawes Point is quite a ways away from Mud and there isnt much going on that way.
