This campground is adjacent to the parking lot for Echo Lake State Park. There is a lot of activity during the day with day visitors and park employees coming and going. It quiets down after the beach closes and folks head home. The sites back up to Cannon Mountain Ski area and you can watch the tram go up and down the mountain. There is hiking across the street and swimming in the lake. There is a beach and snack shop open in season. We've stayed here several times in summer and fall and like it very much for the convenient location and activities in the area. They do not allow dogs until after Labor Day. The bathrooms are locked when the beach is not open so you need to be totally self contained to stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Unlike the other review: the scenery is super to the back, there is a beautiful lake within a minute's walk. True, the front is a parking lot but TV reception is good and you are right on one of the best bike trails ever and it's only .8 miles from Cannon Mountain. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is literally a parking lot. There are 7 spaces at the back of a large parking lot next to Echo lake. Unless you like looking at asphalt this is not the place for you. I had a 3 night reservation booked online. The online map made it look like a normal camping area. I left after one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
