A Hidden Gem

This really is a hidden gem of a campground. Sites are spaced out and it is hard enough to reach that it keeps all the big fifth wheels and buses away. The lake is full of bass and brim and is perfect for kayak fishing. Just be warned, you have to drive over an hour down a gravel road to the campground.

Absolutely WONDERFUL.

I am skeptical about writing a review of this place because it is an absolute JEWEL and don’t really want to make it more popular than it already is.

Secluded and Serene

One of my favorite campgrounds! After about a 45 minute drive up a gravel road, up the mountain, you come to a campground around a lake. Lots of spots, first come first serve. 2 bathroom houses, with running water. No electricity at the camp sites, water stations around the camp grounds. Very secluded. The lake has great fishing and tons of trails around. Sites have fire ring with grill.
