The campground is closed

I was planning to spend my night in this campground but upon arrival the gates where locked up both for the upper and lower campgrounds, it seems that this campground was closed for a while because even the signage can't be read because of overgrown bushes on it.

Another little gem of a campground

A very pleasant small campground. Nicely spaced. Some have great water views. Upper loop is for groups. Most spots by reservations but some first come first served. Great camp host. Swimming docks. Not for big rigs. Fee is $21 and half off senior pass holders.
