    The group campground is adjacent to Jacob Lake Campground and features two group sites that can accommodate up to 100 people each. Perfect for weddings, family reunions, and other large group events, this campground is not intended for traditional camping with small groups of people. The facility offers ramadas, grills, tables, toilets, and water.

    Jacob Lake Recreation Area is very accessible. It is located on 89A, a paved U.S. highway, yet set far enough back from the road to provide privacy. The roads within the campground are gravel.
