This was an awesome little diamond in the rough! We had a blast and it was absolutely beautiful. Totally worth the drive to find this place!!!! Camping spots were kind of close but it wasn't at all packed and what a beautiful little lake!! Lots of trees and a bunch of wild flowers. It was just a great family place!! The lady running the campground was super friendly and helpful. We would absolutely stay there again!!

Beautiful Spot for Fall Color Change

We went up in Mid-sept with our dogs to photograph fall color change and were not disappointed. There is a short trail around the reservoir and we even got pictures of a couple beavers. The campground itself is decent and I've never seen it crowded. Road is impassable in winter.
