Remote, Affordable USFS campground with Cell service

Payne Lake East is primitive camping that costs $6 dollars a night.  From here you can access the amenities on the west shore.  We are here in mid February and all but one of the full hook up sites on the west side are occupied.  However, on the east side there is only one other camper. The lake is very pretty and has an area for swimming and a boat launch.  On the east side the water is shut off this time of year, but it is available at the dump station.   The east side offers a pit toilet, picnic tables and lantern post at each site.  Apparently there are alligators here, but they are seldom seen this time of year per the campground host.
