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
  • Sunset from the dock
  • Good tree placement for hammocks (need a bug screen!)
