Great, quiet spot

It’s great for a church group, or family reunion. The sites are close together without being right on top of each other. The pavilion is a nice addition to.

Secluded campground by the lake

A nice small campground by the lake where you can fish and swim. There are some Hiking trails around too. The campground is small and secluded and camp sites aren’t stacked on top of each other. Loop A seems more for tent camping and loop B can fit pop up campers or teardrops. I didn’t see any that had power or septic/sewer but there is sewer dump at the campground entrance and well as drinkable water.

Very shaded and each campsite has a fire ring and picnic table.
