“A fantastically easy and relaxing place”

Overall Rating

I camped in the bluegill section of the campground. Plenty of spots and some are under trees providing great shade. (Spot 472 is where I stayed and is one of those spots). There are plenty vault-style toilets nearby and water spigots if you need to top off on potable water or to clean. Had a few mosquitos but with standard spray, didn’t have any issues at all. Make sure your food is put away cause little field mice or birds will take advantage. Even if they the food is in the wrapping. (Our hotdog and burger buns were pillaged)

Rate for the waterfront spot was $59/night and includes 1 vehicle. Most spots can accommodate up to 2 vehicles but to have that second vehicle parked there overnight as well is $25/night. They ended up only charging us the “overflow” parking rate at $15/night but didn’t have any issues and weren’t asked to move the extra car or anything.

Check-in is between 12-2pm but 2pm is the standard. Checkout is 12pm. Quiet time starts at 10pm. There was no swimming allowed when I went but I’m not sure if that’s a normal thing or if it’s just a COVID-19 measure. Boats, kayaks, and many other recreational activities or items are available for rent. Prices are on their site and in the map/guide they give you at check-in. Also, it seemed like only Verizon was available as far as cell signal.
