Peaceful, Private Campsites

We enjoyed camping at Double Lake.  The campsites are huge and well kept.  I believe all have full hookups.  We had a lakefront site which had a private little path to the lake.  The shore was good for fishing.  There is a trail which goes around the whole lake, and it was such a nice hike we did…
