Looooong Walk

This campground is very beautiful - clean amenities, and only a few well-kept campsites with fire rings, grills and several picnic benches. The sites are all a far distance from one another so there’s no chance of bothering one another at night. We had two neighbors during our stay but never heard…

Great campground but avoid the yurt!

I have camped with a large group of friends at site #2 a couple of times, but this weekend, I wanted to camp with just my two boys, and site #5 (the yurt site) was available.  This site was new since I had camped here last.  It said it slept 6 and the website showed a pic of two beds; I *assumed*…

  • ripped bug screens and doors that wouldn't close (too tight, hence the rips)
  • walk right to the lake from the edge of the site
  • ventilation holes at top that wouldn't close; c'mon in, mosquitoes!

Low intensity Lake Camping

This is a great spot for campers who would like to car camp and have a swimming feature. The lake is super shallow for at least a hundred yards in all directions from the dock. Where shoes when walking on the dock, lots of nail heads and splinters.

The swimming dock is a short walk from campsite…

  • Sunset from the dock

  • Good tree placement for hammocks (need a bug screen!)
