It's very scenic

The good... peaceful, nice lake with some spots next to the lake.

The bad... not much of a camp store, the wifi is horrible, no Verizon service.

Nice

We stayed there twice. It's very peaceful. Sites are mostly level. There's a dollar general at the entrance.

Our favorite getaway

We love this place! Close to home, easy to get away for the weekend. Very friendly campground, everyone you meet is nice, and very helpful if you need it. Very kid friendly, beautiful views, and Halloween there is GREAT!

Ole' Henry's is very family friendly and set up to accommodate anyone.

Ole' Henry's has a very nice setup with a Giovannis pizza restaurant and camp store on site.  It is privately owned and the owners are very nice.  Vicky and her family run it with some workers that make it very nice.  The showers stalls can accommodate about 7-8 people at a time in the men's and…

secluded sites, shade, trees, clean and level sites

We camped here in June when the temps were in the 90's and the shade that the trees in this campground offer were a life saver.  The campground is always clean and the sites are level with gravel.  They have picnic tables and fire pits at each site and water is usually close.  Check maps because…

If you want to tent camp this isn’t the place

This campground really is made for everyone camping. The sites are a good size but you can’t hVe more than one tent unless you get permission. If you have more than 2 adults you have to buy two sites because only one household per site and only one tent or RV per site. That said you can have an RV,…

Quiet spot next to an industrial area. Nice view of man-made lake with a number of fishing huts for catch-and-release fishing. Pets allowed leashed, with no tie-outs permitted. Helpful owner who escorted us to our campsite with full service hookups but no picnic table or fire ring (some sites had…

Dirty Campsite

We stayed at this “resort” park and were very disappointed.

Campsite was super dirty, food left behind on the ground everywhere, beans, egg shells, etc., were dumped in the creek.

Showers and restrooms were disgusting.

This park needs some TLC.

Hopefully people can respect nature and learn…

Quite

We have been here for a month. It’s very quite, they have a beautiful lake for fishing only. Highly recommend if you need a quite spot to just relax.

Land and Lake Beauty

This campground has it all:)  I picked this campsite as it is further south in the Daniel Boone National Forest so it isn't near the chaos of the climbing that is found further North.

  • Firewood and Ice prices.  The roads are slow going so while you aren't far from town I think it was 12 miles you will notice that the curves make everything take longer.
  • Camp Host information and Security.
  • Zilpo Price List this is an older list but it doesn't look like much has changed.

Busy place but lots to do

This was just an overnight stay for us as we passed through the area, but we will hopefully be back to check it out closer.  Lots to do for the whole family!  We stopped in on a Tuesday and I was shocked at how busy it was, but the sites are large enough that you have plenty of space for yourself. …

We canoed through the lake and found an amazing site with a beach several miles from the campground only accessible by boat…
