“Sites Not Big Rig Friendly ”

Reviewed Feb 05, 2019

Overall Rating

Made an on-site visit to Panther Pond Campground. Three portable potties and a trash bin were available near the pond adjacent to the campground. The width of the campground loop road and most sites are narrow. There is no room to maneuver a big rig within the campground loop and there are numerous overhead obstructions for high clearance rigs due to tree overhang. With that said, the sites although small, are scenic and private and small trailers/campers under 25 feet will likely fit. AT&T service was 2 bars LTE with 23.6 Mbps download speed and 2.81 upload speed. Verizon was 1 bar LTE with 5.05 Mbps download speed and 1.32 Mbps upload speed. The hard packed access road from the highway to Panther Pond will accommodate big rigs, but this campground is a no go for those with larger rigs.

“Quiet, remote, perfect.”

Reviewed Dec 23, 2018

Overall Rating

15 primitive sites, 4 walk up (iron ranger) no water but portapotty and dumpster. Sites 5,7,9 are the best IMHO (reservable only) and probably take a bigger rig. No sites on the pond itself.

Arrived three days before Christmas, 70 and sunny with the whole place to myself. Couple vehicles went by the road, one was a fire ranger. Bugs weren’t bad, gator in the pond, Owl’s calling at dusk & dawn. If your looking for quiet and remote this is the place.
