Approximately 8 miles south of Vernon and accessed by Highway 79, Spurling Landing Recreation Area is located on Holmes Creek and features a boat ramp and two reservation-only campsites.

Each site has a capacity of eight people and two vehicles.

Both campsites have a charcoal grill, picnic table, portable toilet, and a fire ring.

These campsites are available by reservation for use by campers with tents, vans and pickup-mounted campers only (no RVs or travel/camping trailers). The campsites do not have power, water or waste disposal hookups.

The day-use area is open daily from dawn to dusk and launching and retrieval of boats is allowed at all times.

Canoe and kayak enthusiasts frequently take paddling trips down Holmes Creek, which is home to 57 documented springs.

Spurling Landing is approximately 8 miles downstream from Culpepper Landing, making that stretch an ideal paddling excursion for those seeking more than a one- or two-hour trip.
