Nothing special

Do not recommend

Very beautiful place but billions of mosquitoes. We survived only one night. Couldn't stay outside at all. Nothings helped-sprays, bracelets,  enteric oils

Nice campground, but lakeside campsites are elevated above lake

This is a nice forest service campground. It's rustic. Sites can be reserved in advance, which is handy when traveling from far away. The lakeside campsites are elevated somewhat high above the lake, so you need to walk down stairs or a steep-ish trail to get to the water.
