This campground itself was huge! There were so many beautiful sites right on the water. Also there were amazing hiking trails right off the campground. The bath house and bathroom were older and a bit dirty but otherwise it was a great place to stay! We were lucky enough to see a Bald Eagle every morning! Also Len one of the volunteers... more

“Very Nice and Popular Campground”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2018

Overall Rating

We were here during fall break for public schools. In our case that was Friday, October 6 through 10, 2018. We were lucky to get a reservation a month out. It took a phone call to the reservation line to see if anything was left. This is a very popular campground especially among the locals. Something that we have never seen before was... more

“Really nice campsites on the lake - if you can get them!”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a huge campground that is very popular with locals. We were only there for one night as we were passing through. Apparently it had been booked up all summer, but we were able to get a campsite right on the lake for one day since the local schools started that week. We had a pleasant stay and found everything to be satisfactory.... more

“Peaceful ”

Reviewed May 16, 2018

Overall Rating

The price with electric and water along with waterfront with the federal senior pass was $22 a night. No cable and has a dump station. Sites are acceptable,picnic tables and fire pit. Facilities were clean and had washer and dryers. I would stay again. We have straight talk moble and it worked fine.

“Great area, disappointing reservations and check in”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2016

Overall Rating

We're not sure why it was so problematic making our reservation here and finding the actual campground, but it set a really bad tone! The address we were thought was for the campground took us on a 15 mile road to nowhere. It was all just so confusing. I called and spoke to a ranger and he sort of helped us - he couldn't really figure ... more
