“Run Down state campground”

Reviewed Jul 02, 2017

Overall Rating

1 lap through the RV section and you will quickly realize the state has left this campground unmaintained. Major potholes begin as soon as you enter the gravel section and continue until you complete the loop. At one point on the exit side of the loop, you may consider locking in the 4x4 if you have one. Every campsite is in need of serious grooming as they are overgrown.

There is supposedly a lake here. The easiest access may be from the boat ramp. From the campsites, there is a sign indicating a direction to the lake, but you may need to break out your machete to cut a path to the shore. There were no lake views from any campsite.

There is a dump station before you enter the campground.

Its a shame, as this campground could be beautiful.
