Not what we expected

Overall this is not a bad campground, just not our personal style. Tight sites and no grass in the majority of the sites, but the majority are well shaded which was nice. However the weekend we went they had water wars. The water wars themselves did not bother us, however several people did not…

Perfect setting to relax

We stayed in July on site 235. When we arrived, our first thought was “Wow, these sites are narrow!” Fortunately, backing in was fairly easy. Some sites would’ve been more difficult. Site pads are 25’-55’. Most sites had room for just one vehicle. Overflow parking was in the front of the…

Great place easy in and out

Owners were very nice place was very clean. We wish we would have had more blocks so we could have leveled our camper a bit more, but that was our first time camping in this trailer

Good time

Nice campground. Not ton of people and most were pretty quiet. Good mix of tents and Rvs. Good amount of firewood available for sale. Bath house was ok, alot of bugs crawling around and water didn't get hot. Campsites were clean and raised.

Site 10

Primitive site in Michaux. Has a fire pit and that’s it, but FREE. You need to go online and get a permit. I’ve been to a lot of sites in this SF and this is one of my favorites. There’s actually three places to pitch a tent. One is right off the road, one is a little further down (where I stayed…

Walk in Free

It’s a small walk to the tent only sites right off the C & O Canal which is heavily used by bikes and walkers. It sets down from the canal trail while the portapotty is right on the trail. The sites have breathing room and it’s on the Potomac River but it feels really odd to camp with so much…

Really nice little spot! Excited to go back!

We had spot #10 booked from Thursday through Sunday. Unfortunately we arrived Friday evening around dinner time and lost a whole day of our long weekend due to RV issues along the way there, but ended up having a really nice weekend despite the ugly start to it. Nice secure park and really love…

Good, if crowded

Nice campground. Stayed at campsite #33. Liked the lot as the tent pad was set back a good way from the road, but the fire ring was awkwardly close to the neighboring campsite. Lots are on the small side and some are less private than others. Not much enforcement of camp etiquette or rules, which…

Free Rustic Overnight in Michaux Site 15 - Raccoon Run

The Michaux State Forest has several FREE rustic campsites that can be reserved up to 7 consecutive nights.  We chose site 15 - Raccoon Run and loved it.  It was clean, well stocked with firewood and huge!  There was space for 4-6 tents and just as many hammocks.  There is a creek nearby for water…

Site 5 - Primitive

This is a primitive site so all that is there is a fire ring. Sites are free, but you must reserve them online and get a permit. Site is MASSIVE and there is a parking lot that can fit several cars. Stream right past the site that was flowing well in May. Close to lots of mountain biking trails

Nice and quiet campground

Nice campground with great hosts. Fun lake, especially for kids. It can get pretty packed on the weekenders or holidays but mid week is great. Fee to get into the park if not camping.
