Great experience

Wonderful area. Bath houses/restrooms were very clean and nice. (Single occupancy). Nice area. Beach area of lake was closed due to flooding.

Great NF campground with everything

Fantastic NF campground with everything for anyone. Clean bathrooms and showers. Big sites with water in between. Great hiking trails and if you have kayaks or small boats….. looks like you’ve found the place. Oh and this place has good cell service too.

Great campground for families or groups

Twin Knobs is a great campground with many different loops of spots, electric and non, and many amenities. Basketball, volleyball, bathrooms, amphitheater, beach, and more. Many sites are either close to the water or a quick walk. You can park your boat in coves and tie off near your site.
