“Lucky on Lakeside! ”

One of our luckiest experiences on scoring a walk up site. We just planned to take a peek at the campground and then move along as we never though we would get a spot in a popular reservation campground on a weekend in July! But as we were pulling up to the entrance of the campground the host was at the sign flipping it from Full to Vacancy.... say what??? A last minute cancellation, sad for someone, but good luck for us..... we scored a prime lakefront site! Our site was site #5 and I do not think it could have been much better. Solar charging was great in these lightly forested sites. Minimal bugs, which is a positive in my book. Water access to the shoreline was a little steep, but worth it for the private lakeside spot. No cell service! There was construction going on, and by 2019-2020 there will be several more sites at this campground, could make the shoreline and lake a little too busy in years to come? Glad we experienced it when we did!

Campground was nice but has dusty roads. Some of the sites have great lake views. but the cell service dropped substantially when you leave the main road. I think we were getting 1 bar 3g boosted - so no work here. I would stay here if it was a weekend or if I didn't need cell service.
