“Great lakefront, semi developed sites”

We drove our RV all the way down to Fig Orchard. Pulled in on Mothers Day (Sunday) around 4 and just about every spot was taken by tent and car campers.

We turned around and stayed in Grimy Gulch for a couple nights. Took the dogs for a walk one day and the Fig Campgrounds had cleared out. Moved the RV over a spot that would fit us. Had room to back our 40' in and park the toad in front. Its in the first loop of Fig I, on the end of the loop at the right. There are a couple long spots here, and then a couple more in the Fig Orchard II loop.

I would suggest unhooking a toad before driving in, couple tight turns and its a one lane gravel road.

Great spot, fairly level with lakefront view. Access to water is only 15 feet out the front door. Fire pit with a grill attachment and concrete table. Pit toilets, trash cans, and recycling. No water or dump station, but there is a rv park thats on the way back to highway 5.

Cell service is better here than Grimy Gulch.

Verizon had 2 bars of 4g, At&T had 2 bars as well. Download speeds on AT&T were 20+ mb's DL, about 2 mb's UL.

This place gets busy on the weekend. I suggest pulling mid week if you want a prime spot. A lot of tenters come in for one night, then head out in the morning.
