Sites are very small, but everyone was very nice - campers and staff. We were there for sight seeing and entertainment so did not spend a whole lot of time at the campground. We would stay there again.

Where to begin. This is a very, very rustic campground. Campground sits on 300 mountainous acres. There are 8 different camp areas. Some of these areas has about 20 different sites. The sites are not well marked. The roads are not paved and are very rocky. They are also very poorly marked. We started to walk down toward the lake to swim and then realized that we were actually on the ATV trail. If you don't have a high clearance vehicle, beware. If you can not get a site in camp area one, I would recommend not going in an RV. They only have a few "bath houses"; we were near porta potties. This reminded me of camping on Skyline drive only more primitive. If you are into ATV riding and camping this is the place for you. They also have a target range I believe for shotguns. The major draw back that I have with this place, aside from the roads, is the cost. The cost is $12 a person per day. Each child under 12 is $6. So for a family of 4 you are looking at spending $72 for the weekend. We enjoyed ourselves very much and the people there are very friendly and nice. As I mentioned before there are really only two draw backs, the roads and the cost.

Yes, it is right next to the Air station, but it really was not that bad - or you can say that we are just used to jet noise. The only complaint that we have is that they seemed to clean the bathrooms at odd times. 8:00 in the morning we walk up and the bathroom is closed for cleaning. We plan to go back. Watch your trash. The squirrels are not bothered by anybody or anything. They will go right up to your trash and start picking through it.

We only camped here for one night. The pool was not open, but our kids had lots of fun playing at the playground. This campground is very clean. The cleanist I have ever seen. Yes it would appear that they have a lot of rules but when you think about it, the rules just make sence. This is also one of the few campgrounds that I have been to that actually post the rules around for you to remember. There have been some campgrounds that we have stayed at where some of the kids were running around unsupervised and just acting like bullies. We plan on visiting again this summer.
