Would be a 10 if it wasn't 15 miles off the Interstate. Nice paved facility, friendly staff. Weak free Wi-Fi, but I was able to make it work for my needs. One religious channel on air antenna. Mostly seasonal trailers and fifth wheels with a couple of transient Class As like me. No lake views from campsites. Despite all those negatives, very clean and level campsite, a bit on the narrow side, but very long. Marina/boat access require a car ride. Very kid friendly, with a special area in the middle for the tiny ones to ride their bikes. More of a vacation spot/summer home than an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
8 miles from town on narrow winding road, with a few steep spots. Roads are paved with narrow gravel sites, which need help to level. Most sites have rigs there for the season with a few overnight sites left. Power and water were good, cell (AT&T) was weak. We would probably look else where. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you can find your way, the campground was clean but the sites are very narrow. With an antenna, we were able to receive three channels. The vast majority of trailers (we saw one other motor home) appeared to be long term residents with lots of young children. The narrow road coming in is 9 miles of twists and turns including a 5% downgrade. (Hot brakes and bad nerves) DO NOT follow your GPS because you may never be seen again. If you go here, you are on your own. Never again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First of all, this site is very far away from everything on a very narrow road. The sites are very close together. There is 1 shower in the ladies restroom and there are 100 sites. The restroom was not very clean at 5PM. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park but is too expensive for what you get. We requested a 70 ft pull through and got a 40. We stayed hooked up as the lady said lots of campers do for over night. Worked for us. Sprint wireless card was useless and there's no WiFi. Sites were so close together our slide almost touched the neighbor's canopy, will try to find a different place next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We do love this lake and the camp sites are nice. However, they do need to enforce a sound ordinance. There were a lot of loud motorcycles and vehicles with loud exhaust systems driving in and out of the campground during what should have been the quiet hours. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We were going to spend only one night so were happy to see all sites are pull-thru. BUT we hardly had room for our 38’ motorhome, much less the toad. As others have noted, sites are extremely tight and there is no shade. The young man who checked us in didn’t have a clue; had to hunt for a map of the park, then gave us one that had been marked up for at least 4 other campers. The only thing going for this park is that it is better than the coal mine campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little campground with a multitude of water activities on a beautiful lake. The clientele were very nice and well mannered considering there were several hundred adults and children there over the Labor Day weekend. If you a local this is a great place. However for visitors, the 10-mile trip over a narrow, winding road is not worth the aggravation. There are few choices along I-64: many of which are state parks with no reservations and in some cases no utilities. I will not go back because I thought the trip to the park as unacceptable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground even had a sign on the interstate so thought we would overnight here. It was 9 miles off the interstate down a very narrow hilly road. Sites are very close together, there are several people that appear to be permanently sit up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice out of the way location BUT VERY TIGHT SITES at lest you can hope the camper next to you does not have slide outs, and DO NOT bring anything over 40ft even if they tell you they can handle it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad place, but a typical county park...most of the lots were filled with locals using the park as vacation property; most of park was seaonals, but there was room for a few transiants. Facilities were clean and in good repair. We stayed only one night, after a long day of driving...didn't even unhook toad. After dark, it was quite and peaceful. The road to the park is uphill and winding, but not too bad...if were are in the area again, we might stop again for a "one-nighter" We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground has a very nice setting, but the sites have no trees. There is a staff problem, and no one was there when we arrived on a Thursday. It seems to be staffed only during the day on weekends. The skunks were gone. The restrooms were quite clean, contrary to earlier reviews. The showers are timed, but you can keep pushing to keep the water going. Park away from the front of the park to avoid the whine of the sewer treatment plant. This place is quite nice for the price. Be sure to visit the Exhibition Coal Mine if you are in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park itself is very large and very nice, though separated out into sections several miles apart. The RV section is crowded and wide open (no shade), with RVs right on top of each other. We reserved a 50-amp site and that was the site we parked on when arriving. Problem was, no 50-amp service there -- only 30. Notified management and they said their was nothing they could do -- they were full. There was also a problem with skunks while we were there. Lots of them. We saw as many as 5 at one time, in the RV area. We even had one under our RV. They sprayed different animals each night. Notified management of that and they again said their was nothing they could do. The playground at the park is nice, and the lake is very nice. Not much close by -- have to drive about 20 minutes to get anywhere, but it's a pretty place. The road up is a very winding mountain road, but we managed without any difficulty in our 37' fifth wheel. We will be going back to this park in the future, and hope they have some of the problems fixed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We absolutely love this campground. The layout and scenery are both excellent. We are new to RVing. Just started last year and have been here a couple times.
