Nice campground but...

Nice campground on the lake. Well maintained and decent bath facilities. Apparently, on Thursday nights though, there is no park ranger around and some major redneck-shit goes down. Very uncomfortable.

Warrior Creek is OPEN

Full disclosure, I'm staying one night and got in late so I'll be brief. THIS CAMPGROUND IS OPEN AGAIN. I booked through the Recreation.gov app, but I'm sure others will work as well.

Signal on Verizon is strong, had no issues connecting. I'm writing this from the campground itself.

Unfortunately we were unable to camp here. According to park ranger said this campground is closed for one year or longer. No explanation was given as to why. Ft Hamby Campground is nearby and open.
