Beautiful area with large campsites!

We stayed here for 1 week in October. There weren't that many sites that were taken so there were a lot of good sites to choose from! Even on the weekend there were only a handful of sites that were taken, that hadn't been during the week. It is a beautiful area with a lot to do!

There is a dump station and potable water at the entrance to the campground. There are also some water spigots sprinkled throughout the campground. The toilets are vault toilets except in the concession area (that seemed to be closed permanently)  that were flushing toilets. The toilets that were the cleanest were the ones near the entrance in our experience. 

We were able to get cell signal on the campsites up the hill but not in any down by the water, which is why we stayed up the hill. 

In order to get a spot you will need to look around and choose a site then put your tent or RV on it to save it. Then you go to the campground host to pay and he will put your ticket on your reserve post. 

Somehow we did not get any pictures of the lake but it was really pretty! You can fish here and even put in a boat or other water toys if you own one!

All in all - we would stay here again!

  • Our Set up... so much space!
  • Our set up from another angle. You can see that the roads are nice!
  • The Tecumseh statue was just down the road from our campsite inside the campground. Definitely an interesting read! There is also a cave that you can go take a look at. We started to go down the trail but did not make it to the cave due to there being a lot of spiderwebs on the trail lol.
  • This is the actual Tecumseh statue!
  • Camel Rock at Garden of the Gods is a short drive and worth a see!
  • The Iron Furnace is also just a short drive and worth a see!
  • Iron Furnace from the side
  • You can see how big the hearth was. He is about 5' 10".
  • Garden of the Gods had some breathtaking views and cool picture opportunities!
  • More visual from the Garden of the Gods!
