The campground is well off the highway - 4 miles of dirt road. Sites are in the trees and nicely separated. Pull throughs are long enough for motorhome and tow vehicle. Easy payment box system. Park is very clean and well maintained. Lake with boat launch is near campground loops. Town is close by. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great price, but you’re basically camping dry. Still, it’s a beautiful location, and the campsites are very private. You’re far from the main road, so there’s no road noise, but it’s a long, slow drive to your campsite on a gravel road. You can dump for free at Wye Lake, a municipal park a few miles away. Wye Lake also has potable water if you need to fill your tank ahead of time. The Watson Lake campground has water, but it needs to be boiled for 5-15 minutes (according to different signs). They had a mix of back-in and pull-through slots. The pull-throughs were arcs off the main trail, but there was plenty of room for our longish truck and travel trailer, and we could easily put out our slides. You pay for your spot by filling out a form and putting money through a slot, so we never really interacted with the park rangers. We got most of our information about the park from the Watson Lake Visitor Center (next to the Signpost Forest). We would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
