We had a fantastic time at Vogel. We were a group of 9 in 2 separate sites (82 and 75... 82 was the larger site with a tent pad lower than the site, 75 was the smaller site with tent pad up the stairs). The site we used to “hang out” was 75, which looked much larger in pictures than it was in real life. The measurements are a bit off (says there’s room for a 15ft camper... but my camper is 15ft overall and I had to turn it sideways in order to fit the minivan onto the site). That being said, it was still a fantastic trip.
Half the bath houses were closed due to COVID-19 (unfortunately that included the one next to site 73...) but the walk to the other bath house wasn’t horrible and it was always pristine.
The park office had a catalogue hanging by the front door where you could call and order and pay over the phone and they would hand it out the door to you. The only downside is that the line stayed busy, so it took a good bit to get through.
Everyone was super polite. The grounds were all very clean and the trails were well marked. Didn’t catch any fish, but I’m starting to think that’s user error and not due to any issues at the park.
There are a handful of sites that back up to the creek (to the point where you can play in it, if you choose) but they book fast. The loop we stayed on had one such site. Pay attention to the park map, as the red loop is for small campers or tents only.
Overall, everyone had a blast and it was a beautiful park.
Cell service (T-mobile and Verizon) was spotty at best. We went to the main clubhouse and got on the WiFi to pull up the radar during the storm.
