I camped here with my two dogs at the end September. I wanted to get a spot on the rim but it was full. Actually everything was really full. I'm glad I came up on a Friday afternoon otherwise I'm not sure where I wouldn't have gotten a site. The sites are large and fairly wooded. But super dusty. I planned on staying 3 nights but on Sunday afternoon almost everyone was gone. I couldn't see another camper from my site. Then a bit before dusk some guy stopped by to ask me for an air pump. Being a single woman (but with two dogs) it made me uncomfortable. Better safe than sorry. Packed it up and went home to take a much needed shower. It's a great location for visit the local lakes. I went to both Bear and Knoll lake in my Prius. (-:
I drove up on a Sunday afternoon in the hopes some weekenders were leaving. I had my heart set on getting a rim camping site. They were all taken. But I stopped and talked to a couple that I thought was leaving…they had just gotten there minutes before me and offered to let me stay on their site. Super thoughtful! The sites are large with a good amount of space between each camp site. A friend got me a pop-up outhouse kind-of as a joke but I sure am glad I had it. There are no public vault toilets near by.
I can't wait to go again. These are tough spots to get. I'd say it would be next to impossible to get a one on a Friday or Saturday.
