Small, pretty campground with little privacy

We lucked out and got one of the waterfront tent sites. The views are pretty! However, the quality of our site was a little lacking. Very un-level so no great place to put a tent and we also felt very squished together with our neighbors. It looked as we were driving through that many sites seemed that way but maybe not all. The bike path/path to the beach runs right behind these sites as well so there’s a constant stream of people going past you and kids zooming by on bikes. The lake was very clean. The camp store was great! They sell most things you’d need for camping, along with hard ice cream and some nice souvenirs. I think all in all, I would recommend, it just depends on the type of camping experience you prefer in regard to the traffic past our campsite.

Electric only, no water hookups. Small but very pretty lake with clean water and a nice paved path encircling it. The sites are spaced pretty well but are not level at all. It was an effort to get our travel trailer close to level- a ramp of blocks was needed. The site was right on the path, which is right on the lake. Very convenient if you are going paddling. The beach was clean and overall the place was well kept. They just need to level the sites a bit. Nice hills and trails surrounding. You could hear I-81 but not too loud. We liked this campground and would have stayed longer but were just passing through.
