Very busy when we arrived during weekday afternoon with no reservation. Long wait at gate for registration, many day use people trying to get into park. Was assigned a long narrow back-in site by road with no shade or privacy, very close to neighbors who supervised our setup procedure. Typical COE campsite with picnic table and fire ring on small crushed/compacted level stone surface. Limited antenna TV and AT&T cell phone service. It was hot and would return in cooler weather when not so busy. Campground is remote from nearby towns.
Called to arrive during the week in mid July, no same day reservations, told to drive the winding mountain road on up to be greeted with a drive up reservation fee, tourist tax, pet fee, price jumped from $24 to $38.50 for water and 30 amp electric site. Choice of 3 remaining sites. Tried all 3, very unlevel even for 31' motorhome. Ended up with front wheels off the ground to level. None on the sites are big rig friendly. Small sites very close together, no privacy or quiet. No TV, satellite, due to heavy tree cover, or AT&T cell phone. Many low trees hanging over roadways rub the RV from top and sides. Dirty restrooms and showers. This place was full of family campers. Many vehicles jammed into small sites. Not a nice restful escape we were seeking. Will not return.
Nice little remote campground for quiet weekday getaway. Sites will take some effort to level, bring yours boards to help your jacks/levelers. Had to change sites due to ground water flooded fresh water connection below grade, creating a sanitation hazard. There were many waterfront sites that couldn't be used due to this condition which will prevail during the rainy months. The floating boat dock in the campground is dangerous as some of the floats are hung up on the support pylons and are not level, therefore, they cannot be walked on and a unsuspecting person could easily slid off. Through out the driving area, there were low branches that will rake your roof and RV side. Trash was noted - left on some campsites. This campground is a gem in the rough. Be careful if you go here.
We camped here overnight. The overnight sites are located in the middle of this large lakefront resort offering many amenities. The easily accessed, pull through, full hook up site w/50 amp electric site was large (long), and some shade was available. Local TV was available as well as a clear satellite signal. The bathhouses were new or recently remodeled and featured private bathroom facilities which were immaculate. The adjoining laundry facility was clean as well as were the overall common grounds and lakefront beach and piers. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Would return and recommend.
Nice quiet, remote get-a-way. Not near anything or convenient for travelers. Soft grass sites in field were water logged after rain; shared water connections. No shade, would be hot in summer, no sewer connections, no wi-fi, or cable TV. The few wooded sites in a separate loop were small. Good for a short term stay although some traveling workers appeared to be staying much longer. Busy city, day use park with many non-campers around and driving through, no gate house or ranger check in station. Entry gate closed at dark. You are just on your own with other campers.
