  • Beautiful lake and beautiful views. I live near bigger cities so the stars were unbelievable. There is no grill, only a fire pit that has a grill-like grate welded to it but not very practical for cooking so be sure to bring your own. Bathrooms are surprisingly clean for campsite and showers are available with good water pressure. There is a gas station a couple of minutes east of the entrance and a family dollar a few minutes west so if you forget anything there's no problem. We had so much fun, and for sure will be back!
  • Nice quite campground, it's a forest campground so the price is right. Not much around, but if your are camping on the weekend you will need reservations.
