Huge campground, maybe 150 sites in total (between Sunset and Fashoda campgrounds). Easy entrance/exit, any size rig (in about half of the spots, stay right if you have a big rig). Dump station is $10, water available. Beautiful spot, clean bathrooms, level pads. Most spaces are quite a ways from water tho.

“Beautiful campground on a peninsula!”

This is such a beautiful place! There are sites all around the peninsula with beach access. Unfortunately, it will be closed for the next two years for improvements. The sites are huge. There is a dump on site ($10). It fills up on the weekend (and the summer), but we were lucky to be there in September when it was very quiet. Great lake for boating, canoeing, sailing, fishing, etc. Paved bike path from the campground (Union Valley Trail). Don't miss Bassi Falls if you are in the area. No shower or toilet building, only out houses.
