Very well kept, quiet, comfortable

We stayed 2 nights in December. Needless to say no crowds but the showers and bathrooms were spotless and warm. Easy back in spot with water and electric. Dump station on the way out. Lot of storm damage trees made firewood plentiful. Pleasant stay.

Nice spot

I went there during the 4th of July weekend. Site 9 and site 10 are by far the most beautiful sites in the camp in my opinion. They are right on the lake and relatively separate from the other sites. However, I do recommend getting those sites together for a group. While they are separate from others, both site are on top of each other and I felt I had no privacy from my neighbors who had their radio on all night long. The place is clean and safe for a female solo camper, there are showers as well. Both showers and restrooms are clean. However, the ranger drove by only twice during the day and I wish there was someone else to attend the camp to ensure others are following the rules.
