“Nice little Midwest spot”

Reviewed Sep 30, 2017

Overall Rating

We were crossing the country in a hurry and happened upon this little gem. It is about 2-3 miles down a gravel road next to a small lake. The campground was terraced down to the lake. Some sites were right above the lake (it was essentially in your back yard) and some more above it. I think almost all of them at least had a view. It was $10 for a dry spot, $15 for electric. We had 30 amp - was not able to tell if they had any 50 amp. The site we were on was good and level - they are gravel sites, have tables and fire rings. There is a restroom building at the top of the hill (might the a hike for some) that was a good size (that's about all I can say, we didn't use it). There is potable water near the check in area for full up but no sewer dump. The sites are first come, first serve. We arrived in the evening on a fall Friday night and had two spots to choose from. In the summer I think you might try and arrive as early as possible. You can have two vehicles per site. The town of Leon is not far away, Which has a small grocery, and a medical clinic. The lake at the rec area is nice and there were people boating it. We had almost no cell service, so don't expect to stay plugged in (the only one we don't have is Verizon, so maybe that one might work).
