“Free after Labor Day”
Reviewed Oct 04, 2016
Currently the campground is free after labor day and then completely closes around Oct 2nd (normally during the summer there is a fee). The camp host leaves after labor day and the concessionier that runs the place for the forest service let's folks overnight for free. It's kind of a fishing access with a boat ramp. There was a guy stationed at the boat ramp each day in order to check boats for invasive species and the spray off the boats. He also sold firewood. We had a really pleasant time. There is a hike that goes to the other campgrounds on the east side of the lake. It's basically two big parking lots. The upper lot has tables and grills off the sides of the lot. You could put up a tent in this area, it looks like. There is also the boat ramp lot, but you can't camp in it as they lock a gate to that lot at night. There is a lot just above the boat ramp lot but you can only vehicle camp in it, it looks like. There are great views here. There was one vault toilet open in the upper lot while we were there. No trash or water in the off season.
