“Nice and quiet campground in the woods”

Reviewed 9/30/2019

Overall Rating

Once again, we arrived after dark (the days are way too short in the fall!) and although Google Maps guided us correctly to this campground, we also appreciated the very good signage directing us! This campground is set way back in the woods and except for the hooting owl and an occasional barking dog from other campers, it was VERY quiet. No road noise at this campground!

The campsites are spread out over a big area. Sites 1-9 are located near Berry Pond and are serviced by a pit toilet. The rest are about 1.5 miles south on the loop road. We were originally in site 29 but we would have had to walk through a path in the woods to get to the bathroom; since it was dark when we arrived, we were happy to switch to Site 32, much closer. Our site was level but not all of them appeared to be so. Many trees provide privacy. It looked like the restroom/shower building was fairly new and it was very clean. There is also a group campsite and nice day-use areas.

The next morning, I set off to walk the loop road, thinking it would be a couple of miles at most. Surprise – it was over four miles and HILLY! I got a good workout, but it was a beautiful walk. The reward was seeing Berry Pond and the view when I finally reached the top of the hill. Wish we had more time to take a hike or explore the area more.

No hookups. Very beautiful. Stayed in the the field campsites. Lots of trails. Clean bathrooms, but they're far from the field sites.
