The area is quite beautiful, and its a very short walk down to the cove (great if you've got a boat). There was a walking loop around the point that was nice, maybe 2-3km long. We pulled in around 3pm, so we felt daylight was running out and wanted a place to stop for the night (we have a 1yr old so.....)

HOWEVER, it cost more than expected (I guess prices have gone up since the last review), we paid $20 for the night. No hook ups/sani, and the bathrooms did not even have soap. There were some drinking water faucets but nothing we could refill our fresh water tank with.

No cell service.

The sites are quite small!! We have a 17' trailer and had to angle in our f-150 to not stick out of the site.

Way too close to the Interstate for my liking - probably only 100m or less down from the north bound lane, and a train passed by at some point too. I wore earplugs and they somewhat helped....

Despite it being a picturesque area, I probably still wouldn't stay unless I was in a pinch.

We had planned to stop here on our way through but as we pulled in we noticed our Verizon Mifi was not working, as in no service, so we had to figure out another option.

The campsites looked spacious and far enough from your neighbor to not bother one another. The lake being near by looked nice and it's a gorgeous lake.

There aren't any hookups. And the road leading to the campground was very windy and narrow at places. We were a bit nervous with out 27' so I would think larger rigs might be even more tight.

If we didn't have to have service for work we would have stayed and enjoyed the campground.

Our Sprint cell phones did not have service nor did our Verizon Mifi inside the actual campground. However, when we pulled into the parking lot right outside the campground we were able to get two bars on Verizon.
