Overall Rating

We arrived on the 4th and the place was packed with weekenders enjoying the holiday. By early afternoon of the 5th we were one of only three campers left and that seems to be the norm here.

The loops and sites are quite small, making for a slightly difficult entry with a 27 foot trailer in tow. If you are towing anything larger than 30', you best be experienced at it. Sites are so-so, usually backed up to or directly beside another site. Privacy will not be a reality unless the campground is nearly empty. Some sites are not very level, but nothing a few blocks can't fix.

I was a little turned off by the amount of trash strewn about. Maybe from the holiday traffic, but I failed to see the campground Host(s) maintaining any sites after the campers left, so obviously there was always trash being left behind.

No real trails leading out of this campground but there is easy access to a boat ramp (separate fee to launch). Drive a few short miles further into the red area and you have a few choices of hiking and canoe trails worth the activity.

The dirt road leading to the campground seemed to have a lot of truck traffic, which meant a lot of noise during the daylight hours.
