Great campground with lake access. We had a site that was only 300 feet from the water. The campground offers both electric and non hookup sites. The sites are a good size. Water is available within the campground. This area has less trees then the other campground on McPhee. I would advise bringing a shade tent or having an awning for some shade. It was a little windy too when we went. The area Is very family friendly. Hosts were great.
