Wonderful campground. Even with thunderstorms, we still had a great time. Loved the Campfire stories. The restrooms were SUPER clean. The sites well maintained. This is going to be one of our yearly stops
Great little campground! Well maintained, clean, quiet. Not HUGE campsites, but you're not on top of each other, either. Plenty of room for our popup camper on one site and our friends in a large family sized tent on another site. Super friendly and helpful rangers. Unfortunately, we visited when it was absolutely POURING rain for the weekend, so we couldn't do everything we wanted to, but we'll definitely go back!
