“Older Campground, Nice Lake”

Reviewed 12/15/2019

Days stayed: 5
Overall Rating

This is an older campground but is nicely maintained except the shower house which needs to be updated, it's old and dreary and dirty. There's a really nice campstore that even serves food, a bit unusual for State Park campgrounds. The lake is really nice with limited horsepower policy so it's very pleasant for canoeing or kayaking. There are a few nice trails to hike. A lot of ash trees were cut down due to the Borer infestation, but there are still some nice shade trees left. Some of the campsites have a pretty good slope so read the site descriptions carefully. There's a guy that sells firewood for $5 a bundle just before the campground entrance. The town of Wilmington is about 5 miles away where you can get gas, restock groceries etc, there's also a RV dealership out by the Wal-Mart so rv supplies could be purchased there.

“Nice site for the kids”

Overall Rating

Stayed 2 nights Father's Day weekend. Lots of activities for the kids, well kept and clean facilities. Sites are 30 amp only, large and had a nice grassy area in the back for the kids to play. I would have preferred more shade and privacy. We did not use the restroom or shower house. Camp store and restaurant was nice with lots of food options. There is a marina where you can rent a boat. The lake was large and beautiful, not much in the way of trails and no real points of interest in the area.
