Overall Rating

We arrived on 7-7-18 with no reservation. This was Sunday after the fourth and the place had ZERO trash or even evidence of previous campers. After the park cruise we selected #3. While registering June met us to see if we needed help and we did. She made change for us and Doc rolled up in his Camp Host Cadillac! It was purpose built for multi tasking. He informed us #3 was taken and promptly led us to a site and aided me backing in. Doc and June were the most helpful and inter- active (in the good way!) camp hosts possible. After letting us know the rules and bear safety plan he went back to the office and delivered us a very generous $7 wood bundle. Best spots looked like #29 to #36 along the lake with killer views. These spots were spacious and arranged tastefully. Medium rig friendly. When you enter the park.... beware Doc and June have windshield Pomeranians running security. Doc runs a clean and happy camp, your cooperation is appreciated.
