I’ve stayed here before and if you can get E loop it’s walking distance to a nice beach area. Great reception on my Verizon. Could not get anything on my AT&T hotspot. Definitely recommend over lime kiln lake park. I had three nights reservation and left after the first. I guess OK but zero cell service and sites not quite as nice Nicks. Very good for families.

“Pretty but Dark”

Reviewed Oct 09, 2016

Overall Rating

Really pretty campground, almost all sites are deep in the trees. Most have pretty good separation and there are some sweet ones in E loop with views of the water. All sites are primitive and with all the tree cover there is no chance for solar (at least in October) so be prepared for generator use. They do do a nice job of limiting generator hours to just 5 hours of the day so you don't have to hear them all the time. While we were there the weather was mostly cloudy and wet so it was a bit dreary and dark, I'm sure summer would be better.

Showers were individual rooms and clean but the water was not hot enough. Wish that they had some dog waste stations around since the only trash was all the way at the front of the campground.

Verizon and AT&T were both 4G, on VZN we got 13 down and 5 up.
