2 Reviews of Badin Lake Group Camp
This camp ground is comfortable but still maintains its wilderness feel.

This camp ground is great for families and anyone looking to go outdoors. I highly recommend going online to reserve a spot ahead of time. From the times I’ve been there everyone calls ahead for there lots. There is plenty to do like hiking, fishing, swimming, and even horse back riding. And it you are an off road enthusiast, they have made some fantastic off road trails south of the Forrest. The only thing I have about this campground is the restrooms they provide are not the cleanest, so prepare yourself if your not used to that. Overall, I love this campsite.

Great Group Camping Site

This is a great spot to go with a large group - I was with the Boy Scouts. It is fairly secluded, so once we got to the campground there weren't a lot of other people around. If the weather had been better, it would have been unbeatable - it rained from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.
