Large, near the water, easily accessible. Summer only though! :(

I should have checked Recreation.gov to confirm this campground is open before heading there, it would have saved me some time. It closed as of September 11th 2020, and is reopening in May 2021. Looks like May- Sept. is what's planned for next year as well. Boo! Still, glad I did actually go…

Lake Views

While I wasn’t able to secure a spot right by the water, site 4 in the C loop has great views! It has a great pavement pad, along with a paved path all the way to the vault toilets and water spigot. You are fairly close to other campers, but I knew that coming in.

  • Site 4 loop C
  • Site 4 loop C view, direct vault toilet and water spigot access.
