Pure gold for such an inexpensive price

I think lots number 712 and 13 are the best because they are situated right around a beautiful pond with massive lily pads and dragonflies. It is about a 20 minute drive to a local store or a save a lot when we forgot some groceries. The trees are mature so there is plenty of shade and lofty space…

  • very pretty pond on-site
  • the rock bridge about .3 miles from the campground turnoff
  • the playground

Site 32 - perfection!

Simple and small campground in a beautiful area. The sites are great. Bathhouse is simple but clean. No laundry. Wi-fi is questionable.

Great access to hiking trails and scenic overlooks.

One of the best sites and campgrounds we’ve enjoyed.
