  • Hiked a trail that follows a lake with short bridges & easy terrain in January Gorgeous day but not a lot of wildlife that time of year Looking forward to returning in the summer & maybe try a kayak  more »
  • This camp looks good, the camp hosts are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. But I would not recommend it to anyone. The camp is overrun with raccoons. It would not be overstated to say there are hundreds. They start raiding at 7:30 and continue until sun rises. These raccoons are very aggressive and have no fear of people. As a avid camper I can say I have never experienced anything coming close to the experience of this weekend. The varmints attacked my truck cover where I had locked up my food, they destroyed the trim. Again I Do Not recommend especially tent campers, or campers with small children to camp here.
  • The camping areas were well-maintained except for the rowdy raccoons. Somebody actually complained of a left a banana out and it disappeared. Lol. Campsites were pretty level and they weren't squished in. People were pretty quiet it was very shaded. Bathrooms we clean and stocked with toilet paper and soap throughout the day. there are several very nice hiking trails of various types. Most are 1-2 miles except for one 7 mile one. They have small lakes for fishing one of the lakes great for kayaking or small electric motor boats. We'll be back.
