Nice forest and lake

Overall nice place. Sites are spacious, a little too close together for my taste. Other campers were quiet and friendly however. Pit toilets hadn’t been cleaned in almost two weeks.

Great getaway spot

A group of us stayed at Boot Lake campground in the end of July. Normally this campsite takes reservations but for 2020 it’s strictly first come, first serve. We lucked out and managed to snag one of the better sites (#14) on the lake. While there are roughly 8 actual lake sites, if you’re there to…

  • Site 14. We managed to fit a larger pop up camper and there is room for at least two tents, but not a lot of parking
  • Site 12. This site has a long driveway but wasn’t anything special. We only used this site for tents and hung out at the other site
  • View of the driveway from the picnic table at site 14
