The best almost wilderness campground

Really great views, particularly in the fall. Never really crowded. Great hiking trails or you can just read and cook by the fire. Have been going there for years with my kids. An excellent, little known spot.

One Section of a State Recreation Area with Primitive Camping

This state recreation area deserves five stars, but I am reviewing only the New Hope Overlook area. I had stayed at this state recreation area in a popup camper before in a different area, and that was several years ago. This last time, a friend of mine and I stayed in a tent in the primitive area…

  • Our Primitive Campsite without tent pads
  • Sunset on Jordan Lake
  • Walking along the shoreline, we discovered what was probably an old road from decades ago.  An interesting story is that when I was much younger, we would travel from the eastern part of the state to the western part of the state BEFORE Jordan Lake existed.  I would imagine this road would have run along the bottom of the lake back then.
