Super cool and quiet

We picked this campground at random. Cell service was not good at all which was great! There is a lot of history to explore at this campground which made it super interesting. The town is close by if you need anything from Dollar General and there is a nice little walk up food joint across from it.

Beautiful campground

The sites are large and have a big concrete pad attached to the drive. Lots of bike/walking trails. We were in the very back of the campground and it was quiet. The only thing missing was somewhere to swim or sit in the water. Lots of water there, but nowhere to sit in the river or lake.
