“Dry Camping ”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed in Aug 2016 and in addition to the $20/ per night fee we paid $9 to Reserve America for the reservation.

We liked the large wooded sites at the campground. Our site, #15 was very large and private. Our trailer is only 18 ft so we could back in and then angle the trailer behind a boulder for more privacy. There is drinking water available a couple places in the campground. Port-a-potties are located in the campground. A bathhouse is currently under construction. Camp sites include a picnic table and fire ring for the dry camping.

The campground is located on a lake. There is a sandy beach and roped off area for swimming. Signs say swimming is only allowed when a lifeguard is on duty which is late morning into the afternoon. There is also a boat launch. I don't think any camp sites have a clear view of the lake, but some are close.

Our only problem were some other campers (who were camping together.) Around 10 pm they began yelling at each for a few minuets off and on. This went on for 20 min and escalated to every other word being profanity. I Goggled and then called the local police after hearing "I'm going to kill you" and "Let's end this right now." The police, stationed 5 miles away, were there in 3 minuets. We didn't hear anything else after that. That was unnerving and I would like to think this was a nearly isolated incident. I've only called the police one other time and never when camping. (The campground didn't appear to have a host or staff at night.)

I liked this campground very much and in spite of the two guys threatening each other I'd give it another try.
