“Peaceful weekend by the lake”

Overall Rating

Arrival, after traveling miles on the dirt and gravel NFS roads, was easy. The campsites are well designed and offer some privacy either by distance or plant screens. Sites 4-14 have water views, but shore erosion may make it difficult to access the lake from your particular site. We were paid/reserved, so had no interaction with the camp host, although we did see him driving around. There are 2 restroom/shower buildings with 4 separate M/F shower and potty rooms per building. I have seen vault toilets in many federal parks, but these flush. The lake itself is lovely and forested. Across the lake you can view the mansions of Uwharrie point.

I could not determine who was responsible for stocking/cleaning the restrooms. Some children were not so careful with their deposits. Perhaps the campground could leave some cleaning spray and a brush for citizen volunteers to utilize when needed.
