This was our first stop of our summer road trip and it was just what we were looking for. After driving from Virginia we wanted to find a nice, easy place to set up camp for the night and the Saddle Lake area was perfect. There were a bunch of sites still available when we got there in the evening. The site we chose was level and had plenty of room. My only complaint with the place was there were a ton of bugs, so may sure to bring some bug spray or a citronella candle.
The campground is $5 per night and the sites are first come first served. There is a pit toilet, but no running water. Primitive but still a nice spot!
We didn't end up checking out the lake, but we did get some rock climbing in at Hemlock Cliffs which was awesome. Small little crag but it was worth it to get on the rock. I would definitely recommend this place, we had a great time in the one night we stayed!
