We arrived on a Saturday, shortly after opening without a reservation.

This Forest Service Campground was a bit primitive. Most sites were huge encouraging some larger groups, sites were somewhat level, some were lakeside, some were tucked up into the trees, others had no shade, pit toilets, trash, fire pits, tables, potable water, paved road to the campsite, friendly host.

Access to OHV and mountain bike//hiking trails. The non motorized trails were VERY busy on Saturday and Sunday. People were fishing and enjoying a paddle on the lake.
