“Nice Quiet Place To Stay”

My wife and I stayed during for 3 week days in May starting on Tuesday. Only about 1/4 of electric/water sites taken and many of those were leased long term sites. Camp host was very helpful.

Well-spaced sites with lots of trees. Would have loved to hike around the lake but we were only stopping for the night. Could have easily spent several days here. The drive in to the campground was beautiful. Not too busy in mid-April - good place to practice walking the cat on a harness/leash - see pic.

I have been here only in fall season. Not sure if you can reserve sites, but I have always come during the off-season and haven't had problem finding a spot w/o reservations. A few of the sites have water views but all of the sites are close to Lake Glendale. I really enjoy this campground as many of sites are spacious, shady and wh... more
