Beautiful Lake

Sites were fairly close together, but everyone was friendly. Filled up quickly on Friday, FCFS campground. 

Vault toilets and firewood are both close by. Short walk to the lake, which is beautiful. Trail accessible within the grounds.

Awesome location

We decided that we didn’t need a table or fire ring and chose the lower lot. #5 is the best. Good views, right on the water. Only negatives is the closing of the rv dump down the road.

Awesome Overflow Campground and Host

This overflow campground has always come through for us when we’ve gotten a late start. We take our Dodge Travato and a tent. We are able to have a campfire-in the approved location of course! Mt. biking, swimming, hiking, SUP.... so many activities!
