Campground is situated off the Blue Ridge parkway. Access is by a hilly, dirt road. Sites are placed along a mountain ridge with LOTS of shade trees. Facilities at the park are fairly OK. Bathouse in the D loop is old and needed painting but they were cleaned everyday. They have a small pond to swim, which I wouldn't recommend, but fishing was excellent. They have a good game room with video games, pool table and ping pong. The camp store is stocked with the basics.

The park is very old Florida, much of it is undistubed in it's natural setting. As for the lake, there really is any access to the lake from the State Park except by a canal and which there is no beach or swimming. The nearest town to do any eating or supplies is about 20 miles away, although a couple general stores are in the area. The campsites are very private with a lot of growth. The bathhouses are old but for the most part are clean. No real activities besides hiking, fishing and a cow school. One downfall is the amount of air boats out on the lake at midnight. It sounds like you are camped at a airport at times! :)
