The deadline to apply for a seasonal campground site at Mississinewa Lake is Oct. 11.
 
Interested campers must submit the application and a $500 check by 4 p.m. to be entered in the drawing for sites. For applicants who aren’t drawn, the check will be returned. For those who are drawn, the check is non-refundable.
 
Seasonal camping runs from May 1 through Oct. 31, 2018. DNR reserves the right to change dates due to weather, rising lake levels and other unforeseeable events.
 
Sites include a concrete pad and adjacent water, sewage, Wi-Fi, 50-amp electric service, and use of a fire ring. Shoreline mooring, courtesy dock and boat parking are also available for use in the campground area.
 
“These sites are considered premium in the DNR State Park system and have great lake access”, said Larry Brown, property manager.
 
The 2018 price for a seasonal campsite is $3,103. The remaining balance of $2,603, after $500 deposit, must be paid in full by March 1. Charges and deposits for electric are the responsibility of the camper.
