Overall Rating

I was anxious about this campground due to some of the reviews I read, and it ends up my concerns were justified. First, my error, we missed the turn down to the campground, fortunately there is a marina with a large parking lot at the top of the hill, which allowed us to turn around.

At the gate check in was easy, but we received some bad information about where to turn and ended up turning early, causing us to have to back out of a tight turn with a huge drop off on one side, and a big drop off on the other.

The camping loop has a couple of tight, but doable, turns and some pretty severe drop offs. Our biggest problem was that there are some short, steep sections of the road. We drug the back end of the RV a couple of times and couldn’t back into our original site because the rear end hit ground before we even got close to the site. There was no way we could get it.

The camp hosts at the gate gave us a couple other options, we chose One and eventually managed to get our rig into it. It was far from ideal, with a huge picnic table that couldn’t be moved and a fire pit with no room to sit around. But, we were there and settled in for a long weekend stay.

There are some very good RV spots, but there are quite a few that are crammed in tight. The main loops, near the boat ramp and swimming area, are pretty cramped. The water front sights are strange, being back to back, with one side only good unless you pull through before the other guy gets there, or you are a motor home that can pull forward into the spot.

The main bathhouse was old, but clean. If you are down at the waterfront sites it’s an uphill walk to the bathhouse and laundry. Being from Florida, I would probably drive.

This is a popular spot on weekends, and can be quite busy, both in the day use area and the campground.

AT&T coverage was spotty in the park, but usable with our booster.

We wouldn’t return, we just weren’t comfortable with the size of our rig and the tight, tiered, spots and we really didn’t have any living space once we were there. If you know the park, you can select a site to fit your rig, and if you aren’t a 39’ 5er with a full size pickup, you will probably be much more successful than we were. Even with a smaller rig, the main camping area was too cramped for us.
