“Quiet Lakeside Camping”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Great quite little semi-developed campground on a pretty reservoir.

2 loops to park in we chose the first loop to the right. The second one looks doable, but there is quite a few trees close to the road. Some of the branches where hanging to low for us.

Most lake front spots are in full sun and no shade. If you want a shade spot, there is a hand full in the loop.

Pit toilets, Trash, and Recyling in each loop.

Cell service is decent.

On AT&T iPhone service came in and out, when available it was only one bar.
On Hotspot service hopped between 1 and 2 bars, DL @ 4.83 MB, UL @ 1.72 MB
Verizon Phone was 1 bar of service, not hot spot available.

We came in from highway 5, nice paved 2 lane country road. Beautiful drive with a few hills and tight turns.

Gonna have to assume that this opens the same season as Stony gorge reservoir (April 13 - on) because I drove up to it and the site was closed.
