I've only stopped here for a quick lunch break while exploring without the camper. The drive is rough, single-lane dirt. Locals bring trailers (both campers and horse trailers) but if you've never been to the area before you need to scout it out first. The first 10 miles of the 16-ish mile drive are easy enough. Double lane dirt through some farmland, due West from Main St in White Sulpher Springs. Once you pass the farms you start on a single-lane rocky road and start to climb. It's almost a straight shot up for 4 miles with little or no room to pass anyone. Not that there's a lot of traffic back here..And don't miss the turn for the camp. There isn't anywhere to turn around for a LONG time if you do. Check your spare tire(s), the rocks on the road aren't big but they are pointy and having one slice through is the biggest risk. The road can be muddy too in the spring and fall.
Camp itself is pretty bare-bones. Few older tables and fire rings, half a dozen back-in sites. No freshwater. Bring your own TP, I don't think they check up on this place more than once a month so the toilet is almost always out. There is a trailhead on the north side of the lake, separate from camp, and a 2nd pit toilet there too. And a trailhead on the south side near camp has several large parking spots for horse trailers and a small corral.
The lake is small but can be great for fishing if you have a canoe or kayak. Lots of non-motorized trails in the area for hiking biking and horseback riding. And the rest of the FS roads west of camp are best for ATVs and 4x4 rigs (no campers) - very steep, narrow, and lots of switchbacks. The road eventually connects to Highway 284 NE of Townsend but you cannot bring trailers or any large rigs through here due to the terrain.
