July 9 Favorite Camping Spot by vlizzle
Nice small campground with well maintained and spacious sites. Super clean sites and beach area. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help. Highly recommend.
June 3 clean, well kept, beautiful lake by logcabin1
Been camping here for about 55 years. This campground is clean and woodsy. Showers are a nice addition. Lots of privacy and the lake is so clean. Great place to kayak, hike, or just hang around in the woods. Staff is very cordial and acconmodating.
