We stayed here in mid October. The leaves were turning colors and was beautiful. Noise from nearby road is noticed in the evening but died down at night time.

“Wonderful gorgeous awesome”

This is a wonderful location. Most of the sites are a little down hill from your vehicle. Our site 7 had three spots to access the lake. One was a lovely natural stone path. The view is amazing and the water is clear and warm. Some sites had tents but no one was around so it was very quiet

“Stellar tent camping on clean lake”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Great spot for tent camping, clean, private wooded areas, bathroom by site #1. Good hiking behind designated sites. On your drive up coming from the east you’ll pass a few stores to grab last minute essentials if need be. Drive to and from camping is magnificent. The lake is incredibly clean, and in the summer I imagine it would be a g... more

“Beautiful and quiet”

Reviewed Mar 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Pros: We stayed in site #11 (or something close). Sites 1-9ish are ideal for tent camping. They all have you park on the side of the road and walk a very short distance down to the campsite. The last few sites are ideal for RVs, you can drive all the way to the campsite. Each campsite has a leveled area for a tent, a fire pit (with gri... more

“Great free spot!”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2017

Excellent private, large, wooded site on a lake across from a marina. Really beautiful and pretty quiet even though I know there were other campers nearby. I think there are 11 total sites. Some you would basically be parking on road, but this one as well as a couple others you pull off into clearing. Ours had fire pit and picnic table... more

“Lakeside camping with cell signal!”

Reviewed Jun 04, 2017

Overall Rating

The sites here are along the lake, which is crystal clear and was lovely for swimming. All campsites have a picnic table, fire ring, BBQs and lantern holder. Sites 9, 10 and 11 are close to the vault toilets are would be better for RVs, although if you have a class B site 6 is wonderful, though difficult to get level. Not much to do ar... more
