The best part about this campground is, hands down, the hiking trails. Totaling around 4.5 miles, the trail takes you up around 600 feet to the Appalachian Trail. There are 2 trailheads, one being pretty steep (or I am out of shape). The view at the top makes the climb VERY worth it. We did not take the other trail, but I heard it was VERY steep, but I plan to tackle it on my next trip anyway. Staff was not super friendly and there were only two bathhouses with showers. The walk to these houses from our site (61) was rough so plan to drive it. The rock river is awesome as well. Primitive bathrooms were gross, not real dirty but STINKY! We'll DEFINITELY be camping here again (likely very soon).

Camped here Memorial Day Weekend, 2009. Minimum reservation of 2 nights which is reasonable. Site was not level, but saw that most sites were level. Our site, though not level was creekside and was very private and very beautiful. Overall, the campground was very well maintained. Only two major complaints: during the day we did have some kids playing in the creek behind our site, which was essentially part of our site. Also, the campground is obviously geared toward seasonal campers, and there was NOTHING to do. No trails, nothing. Would be great for families with kids, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our experience, just wish there were more activities for adults on the grounds.
