Cramped, but isolated

Campsites are pretty close together, there's a middle ground between sites where it may feel like people encroaching on your site. It's isolated from the city, though, so stargazing is a huge plus. Either bring firewood or buy it, they don't allow collecting, not that there's much to collect anyway.

They advertise reservable sites, but it's first come first serve. They also only allow 1 tent per site, more than 1 person is charged additionally.

Awesome Site!!

Beautifully located!! Right next to a creek in the middle of the woods, but yet just a short walk away from the edge of the lake. Mountains in the distance make this an ideal location. Facilites are adequate, kept relatively clean and will do the trick when you need to take a quick shower. There are trees and bushes between campsites that feels very natural, and minimizes the feeling of how close the sites are to each other.

Close to a lot of places you'll want to visit in Oregon

This campsite was pretty close to Oneonta Gorge, Multnomah Falls, and Latourel Falls. It wasn't as well spaced as I would have liked, but overall it was a nice site with adequate facilities.

3 stars cuz the mosquitos were swarming

Great campsite near Crater Lake, and water was very close to this site. The mosquitos were UNREAL, though. They swarm and stay swarming until you get in your tent. Bring bugspray and you won't get bit, but it was definitely pretty annoying. Facilities were really nice, wake up early enough to get warm showers. The showers are on timers, but I probably restarted it 3/4 times.

It's also much colder than you think it'll be. We went the first week in July, and temperatures probably got down to the mid-30s. Bring a blanket!

In the hills of California

Campground was nice and views were pretty good, very hilly part of California. We stayed when there was a large group of middle schoolers, though, and even though we were at a different campsite loop, they were pretty loud. The site as a whole tho is really nice, and the showers and facilities were more modernized than I had expected. Hot showers always make a roadtrip easier.

Hard to find, but well worth it!

DON'T follow your GPS, it took us down some sketchy path in Kings Canyon NP that led to some research facility… and the road was off-road and took it's toll on our car. Look for directions on your GPS to Hartland, and at that point there should be signs pointing you to Eshom Campground.

This campsite is packed deep into the woods, and is awesome! If you're looking to get away, this is the place to do it. Steve is the camp host and extraordinarily helpful. Ask him to show you were the clearing is to stargaze-->gorgeous view of the night sky. If you don't go to the clearing, the trees get in the way.

Water is pretty accessible, and facilities are alright.

Nice area, well placed campsites

Great campsite to stay out if you're planning on going to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Not too far, but far enough that it's not crazy busy. Nice campsites, trees provide some shading. Facilities are pretty decent, we had water right next to our site which was really convenient. BRING BUGSPRAY

Camp right next to the orange towers

This campsite was pretty unique! You had to drive in the middle of nowhere to get to the campsite, but totally worth it. The drive in took about 20 minutes, watch out for jackrabbits crossing the road. Bring bug spray, but this was a very cool place to camp! The rocks provided shade from the sun since there's no trees.

It's a resort, not a campground...

Campsites were 10 feet from each other, and surrounded by the RV hookups and cabins. If you're looking for a genuine camping experience, you won't get it here. I imagine it'd be a great place for glamping, but I give it two stars since I was under the impression they had legitimate campsites. Facilities and showers were very clean, though, that was a big perk.

Great location`

Nice shade provided by trees; it's adjacent to a resevoir, so just a short walk to the road crossing over the resevoir provides a great view of the sunset. Never used the facilities so unsure of how clean they are. Campsite provided picnic table.

One of the best campsites I've been to

This campsite was right next to an incredible lake. The campground host was so nice, and made sure to check in with us when we arrived to help us get things squared away. He gave us great suggestions about what to do and even where we could swim in the lake. Facilities were surprisingly clean, and just a short walk from the site. No shade, but plenty of space between camp sites. 10/10

Awesome!! Lake camping

Mountains in the distant background, beautiful lake a short drive away. Campground has very little shade, but the view more than makes up for it. The campsites aren't too close to each other, so there's plenty of space to feel like you're by yourself. Definitely recommend!!

Feel further away than you really are

site 16 will get you furthest away from other campers and give you some privacy. It's a nice getaway into the mildly wooded area of Gambrills, but provides plenty of space for multiple tents. Facilities are pretty standard, not too dirty but yet not too clean. Definitely worthwhile to get away from the busyness of life while only having to travel a short distance from bigger MD cities

Quality views from campsites

Campsites on the Choptank, Miles, Elk loop bring you right next to the water. Gorgeous view, and only a few minute hike over to stony point. There's a sandy beach there that provides a relaxing environment to kick back.
