We have camped here many times and love this campground. Many of the sites are huge and very private. It is always very quiet, even on the busiest holiday weekends. Access is excellent for large rigs. The one negative is the small, cramped showers. But we usually find the bath houses clean. There is good lake access for boats, and there are a couple of swim beaches. There is also a playground. We will keep returning here. - Ken H.
Great campground close to Research Triangle Park and all Raleigh has to offer. Nice lake with plenty of water sports opportunity. Bathhouses could be cleaner, but I let my standards slide knowing its a State Park facility. Nice family campground. - NCcampmom
We really liked this campground with just a couple complaints. Positives were the nice sites with a good deal of privacy. Most were pretty large and flat. Reserve online and you will be able to get very accurate details about the site that will help you make your choice. The 2 beaches were small but were nice sandy beaches. Also had grassy area great for a game of frisbee! Picnic tables near beach in shady areas. You can also swim or put in boats, floats, etc., at many places around the grounds, including your own site if you select a lake site. Bathrooms were the negative part. Small showers with only one curtain so if you are a private person, you won't like that at all. Water is solar heated so showers at night are not so pleasant. Toilet paper runs out on weekends and bathrooms were pretty dirty by late in the day as well. Overall nice. Will go again. - CamperSal
The signage and directions are very unclear and make it hard to find this forested campground. It is very peaceful and almost empty this time of year. - WNC Traveler
We've always been big fans of the NC State Parks system, and we will continue to use them. It's unfortunate that budget cuts are really noticeable. The cleanliness of the bathhouses is the lowest I've ever seen at this park. I would have had to have been very desperate to use the showers. Some of the sites no longer have gravel covering them as weeds have taken over. That said, the sites are very generous in size and private. We had a great time, and we will camp here again. - EJABsAdventures
A very nice place to stay. Nestled in the woods, just a short walk down to the lake. We got fooled by our GPS when approaching, luckily my wife glanced a sign reading "Rolling View". Following for about 10 miles we finally found the entrance to the park. Nobody in the rangers office. However, the campground's map showed our reserved site. It turned out to be a bit narrow but nicely arranged staircase to a private picnic area. Very quiet and if there would have been other campers, we still would have had a lot of privacy since the sites are well apart from each other with trees and shrubs in between. There is no Wi-Fi or cable here and no chance to catch any signals under the tree canopies. Definitely worth coming back and staying again. - TheSchweitzers
