We used this campground as a stopping point after a trip to Fantasy Lake Water Park. It's secluded, small, cute, and located right on the Lumber River.
Our particular site, PA 7, is one of two right on the river's edge, across from the Naked Landing trail. Sites 7 & 8 would be perfect for two families to camp together, because they'd have the whole trail area to themselves. These sites have a bit of hike-in required, in that you can't drive up to them (see my uploaded photo of where the parking lot is in relation to the sites).
There is a vault toilet near the parking lot ("that's gonna be a no from me, dog") but an actual restroom facility across the parking lot.
Each of the sites has its own trash can, and a ranger comes by in the morning to empty it.
The river is nice to swim in after a hot summer's day, although the bottom is quite squishy. It's a good area to fish or use small watercraft.
We slept in hammocks and were awoken at dawn by a cacophony of juvenile barred owls directly above us.
Large area where dog training sport hunting is permitted. Not a campground. However home to the largest rally race in the southeast!
Had a lovely stay here. The sites were kind of course together, but it turned out just fine. You can see tons of stars here at night, it is amazing! It's lovely to sit by the water and look at the night sky. Also, there's a lot of owls here at night. If you are a light sleeper you may want to consider ear plugs. It's lovely, but the owls do get kind of rowdy at points making a racket. There bath house was a decent walk, but nothing ridiculous.
We had a Cub Scout Pack campout here, and it was perfect for us. There was a noisy group off to the back, but that was the only issue. There is no electricity unless you get an RV site, but we managed fine without. There are full bathrooms right at the campsites, and they are basic, but adequate.
We stayed in the camp juniper group area this time, but have camped in the regular campground in the past. The regular sites are usually full, and very close, but the lake front sites are gorgeous and worth being close to neighbors. The trail around the lake is very pretty, and there are lots of things to do across the lake. (Boat rentals, playground, picnic areas, park office…)
the only drawback to the group area is that it's not directly on the lake, and there are no bathrooms. Bring a bucket potty, or drive to the other camp area to use the bath house. Or do the 200-yard hike-with-a-trowel… Our Girl Scouts and Daisies managed just fine, though!
