“Not for big RVs!”

Reviewed May 23, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here because we were trying to visit a friend who lived in the area. Admittedly I didn't do a ton of research - I just saw that it was a state park that could accommodate 35-foot RVs, so we went. The road into the park is awful - it's paved but full of potholes and very, very bumpy. We were shaking and rolling the whole time - and it's about 8 miles before you get to the campground. There was no one at the office, but I had called earlier and they told us just to pick any spot that wasn't occupied. We found what looked like a great, huge site with a view of the lake. But we had a hell of a time backing into it. At one point we thought we had gotten stuck between two trees! It was very stressful. We did eventually get in, but then we were very worried about our ability to get out if the campground became more crowded, so we decided to find a different spot. We did find another spot that worked, but I would estimate there are only about 3-5 sites that could accommodate a larger RV. Also there were low hanging branches everywhere. I had to stand outside the RV and hold them to the side just so we could pass. And the mosquitoes were horrific - completely swarming us as soon as we stepped outside. Dry camping only. Poor cell signal. It was very quiet, but there were only about 5 other campers there. We would not stay here again. For tent camping it might be a different experience.
