I grew up on this lake spending countless summers swimming off the beach at Appalachia bay. It’s got so many memories wrapped up in its muddy water and rickety play set. It was a wonderful place to spend my childhood, however it’s not my first or top 10 of locations I’d choose to camp, anymore.
Close to the city it is a nice place to get away for a little while. If it isn't closed for flooding or storm damage it is a great place to visit.
