Open field

Was pretty unimpressed with this campground. We showed up without reservations and there were many open sites but the only ones available without a reservation were in the middle of a field and shared a driveway with the site next door. So, no privacy. Wind was pretty intense since we were in the middle of the field, make sure if you have a tent it is well tied in. Most of our stakes came out despite being hammered in, we relied on luggage in the tent to keep it down.

Make sure you get a private site

Good campground but there don't seem to be a ton of private spots. We lucked out and go a spot on Dogwood loop, site 20, with nobody on one side and some space between our site and the other site on the other side. There was water and bathrooms right across the road. Campground had showers but we didn't use them so I'm not sure how clean they are. We also didn't make it down to the lake. Easy check in and out and they sold us wood at check in. Close to the AT and only about an hour from Harper's Ferry where we spent the day.

Great hike in campground

It's about a mile hike in to the campground, which sits in the woods in the park. Firewood is available for sale and there are fire rings with grates and a picnic table. Sites are large enough for three one person tents. Pit toilets, no showers, cell service. Make sure you bring a bear bag or box with you.

Lovely campground by a rive

Lovely quite campground in the woods next to a river. We stayed on the side away from the river and I wish we had stayed on the river side, but it was still fantastic. No cell service, pit toilets, no showers. A little far away from civilization/stores, which is exactly what we were looking for. Site 10 setup is great, park near the picnic table and fire ring, pitch tent a little further up the slope under the trees. It did get coooold during early June, bring a good sleeping bag and warm clothes!!

Tent site #8 by the river

Couldn't be happier with our stay at this campground!! The site was right by the river in a small cluster of 3 tent only walk in sites. The walk in is only a few feet for this site so it's not really a walk in site, perfect if you don't want to wander too far from your car. The site is right on the banks of the large rushing river that will lull you to sleep at night. The two other sites are close by and there isn't much privacy but they are set apart enough so that you don't feel on top of each other at all. The bathrooms are very close by as well. No showers at this campground and only pit toilets, no cell phone service. Go down the street to the Mishawaka, great bar and food and amazing bartender.
