The campground is very isolated. It's about a 40 minute drive from the nearest town (and therefore the nearest gas station or market - plan ahead). There is no power, or water. There's no cell service in the camp, but a 5 minute drive up the mountain there's a dirt lot they call the 'phone booth' that gets decent reception. The camp hosts were super friendly and helpful. There are 2 loops for campsites - the center of the main loop seemed pretty flat, but all the sites were visible to your neighbors. Sites on the outside of the main loop offered more privacy, but most appeared to not be very level, and not necessarily well laid out. I stayed in site 11 on the outside of the loop which was large and fairly quiet, but my 6 person tent just barely fit in between some trees which offered some shade and was only on a slight angle. The one downside was the bathrooms - vault toilets that varied in condition, but none that I used were particularly good. If bathroom condition is a major sticking point with you, you may want to look elsewhere.

As an added bonus, as isolated as the place is, right outside the entrance to the campground is a bar & grill called the Camp Scheideck Lodge. They have a full bar and great food (and the customer-only bathroom is a great step up from the campground).

The temperature varies greatly from day to night (90's to 50's when I was there) and there are bugs a plenty, so bring repellent. Firewood is available at the camp, and ice is available at the lodge.

We stayed two nights in pretty cold conditions. But we had the entire campground to ourselves. The hosts were super nice and gave us a few local tips. There’s a bar and grill at the entrance of the campground but we didn’t visit. If you’re not in the mood for cooking and need to warm up inside it looked like a great option. There are several dog friendly hiking trials with trailheads within the campground.
