Keeping it basic (Primitive nonelectric site)

Have to walk to the site but if you want nonelectric/ primitive that’s what you get. Water pump at either side of the entry. Some outhouses available. Trails close as well as fishing areas. Large sites for camping. Deer and wildlife seen in the mornings. Really nice way to get off the grid for a second without having to go too far.

Would definitely stay again

The staff was amazing. Kind and helpful. Very outgoing and able to offer suggestions and advice on the area. Though some may not see it as a perk, being right off the highway allowed us quick access to everywhere we needed to go every morning and was a reason we chose it. Less than an hour from most must-sees in the area. Close to some nice local restaurants and a Walmart to restock supplies. (Also, they do have a small selection of supplies in their office to purchase). A pool and playground for the kids to relax when the vacationing takes a toll and you need a day off. Coin laundry and nice bath facilities. The view of the city in the morning over the hill or the lights at night was really beautiful from our tent site. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
