Overall Rating

One of the prettiest campgrounds I have ever driven into and kept in perfect condition. Vault toilets immaculately clean, only 15 pitches, quiet, peaceful, rocky access to the lake but do-able. Good privacy between pitches, mix of shade and sun. Good, small gravel road and pitches. Paved road to campground. Zero Verizon coverage.

Other CG's on lake: Smokey Bear & Inlet share their areas with public access. Both are more crowded and larger than North Shore. Smokey Bear is functional but not attractive and Inlet looks to be set in a marsh (mosquitoes are bad enough.)
