Stayed for 3 nights with our 17ft bumper pull. Dry camping, but nice level sites for smaller rigs and tents. You could probably get a small 5er in there as well. No hookups or any water.

The amazing Lake Como is right there and you could easily spend 3 days or more playing in and around the lake.

This is now known as the Three Frogs Campground and sits directly above the lake shore trailhead on the north side of Lake Como. this rate reflects 50% Senior Discount. We planned on spending our 1st nights in our new 20' trailer at the lower campground, which has hookups. That campground was full on a Tuesday morning, with only 2 sites planning to vacate that day, and several RV's poised for those spots. We came here instead, not sure if sites would be available or big enough for our rig. No problem. I wouldn't take anything larger than 22' in here, but were are several sites big enough for us. On a Tuesday and Wednesday in June, it never filled more than 50%. This camp has pit toilets and several water spigots. The camp hosts were friendly, and the winding one-way access limited unnecessary traffic. There was some boat noise, but nothing like on a weekend.
We stayed in site #3, with a view of the lake. The upper sites are more private, but further from the lake and after spring rains there was some standing water.

We live nearby, and I've been going to Lake Como for 60+ years. What was once a quiet local getaway has been developed by the USFS and by its own popularity, to the point that I NEVER go there on a summer weekend. That being said, there is still a great trail to the head of the lake, about 2 1/2 miles, where a waterfall plunges under a footbridge into the lake. About 1/4 mile up the canyon above the lake is another falls that splits into 3 during spring runoff. Halfway between the campground and the head of the lake is a view across the lake to Little Rock Creek Falls. In spite of its popularity, Como is worth a visit, if you can do it on a weekday.
