I really enjoy this campground. My dog got a tick here (yes a tick) 15 years ago when I stayed here so I have been coming for many years. The close proximity to the lake is nice. This is not a motorized sport lake or float planes landing that I have ever seen means you can paddle out without worrying about other peoples wakes. It also lets you float silently and gives you better opportunities to get some great views of the local wildlife.
This is a large 98 site campground with all different sized spots including Premium spots (bigger /close to the water).

Like all State Recreation site it has all the basics, the campsites are spaced out which is nice. Not sure the reason but this campground was buggier than the South Rolly lake one, which I would go to first given the choice. But if that campground is full this is a great one to fall back on. Bring bug dope or a netted awning which I just got, worth the money if you are planning on doing lots of camping or have kids who already complain that you drag them camping.
