The campground is down a 3 mile road with nothing but woods. It sets a peaceful tone. The sides here are spaced out and some are very secluded. We stayed at a more open site (A1) with a road on both sides, but it wasn’t a problem due to it only being campground traffic. Our site was large enough for our giant tent and a friends normal sized one, with extra room to spare. There are stairs and/or incline roads to get around and to the bathroom/showers. The bathrooms were clean and the site hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Mostly people were respectful of quiet hours and by midnight on Friday and Saturday all you could hear were loons on the lake.
When you’re at Russel Pond it feels so wonderfully peaceful but the campground is close to lots of great hikes and attraction.
