Overall Rating

A late May stay was great timing for Laurel Hill - the weather was warm but cool in the evenings at the higher elevations. We stayed in the 172-205 loop in site 189 - it was a challenge swinging in our 25' Airstream with the foliage very close to the paved driveway but a few pivots and patience paid off. In that loop, site 173 would be the most preferred: more cleared opening and a private little seating area with firepit and picnic table somewhat removed from trailer parking and along a small rocky stream perfect for kids to play along. If you have anything more than a 25' trailer and a large SUV, you may be limited to the other open-field sites. Note, water access was very limited on the 172-205 loop (nearest was only a fountain in the middle of a thicket of woods; definitely need to fill at campground entrance to save a trip. Firewood $5 on honor system at entrance (which is quite convenient). In late May, we were the ONLY camper in the loop on a Sunday night so we felt like we had the woods and space to ourselves.

Bathrooms were variable across the several bathhouses we used - some seemed more recently renovated some dated. Laundry and outdoor washer/dryer spaces were well maintained. Campground playgrounds were what I remember as 1980s vintage (stainless steel slides, metal, and painted wood). Updated playground space is located along the scenic lake where you can rent kayaks ($10/hr) and a concession stand (not yet open) serves the sandy beach space which was nicely groomed (though not yet warm enough to use in May).

Worth a visit, especially if passing through and you'd preferred quiet wooded space over open field campgrounds like those nearby that pack you in beside your neighbors. It's a solid 30+ minute drive to a grocer but a few pizza, deli, etc. spots are not too far so plan accordingly. Definitely consider bringing a kayak - access from the beach side parking would make dropping in very easy for a leisure paddle.
