This campground surprised me. It's tent sites are quite nice and large. Private and spacious isn't what I expect for $20! Yep just $20. Showers for $0.50 per three minutes and flush toilets. Cash and credit accepted except that when I was here their phones were down due to recent storms so they couldn't take credit.

My fiance and I stayed in the hardwoods section (in one of the secluded sites) and absolutely loved it! We spent 5 days and 4 nights there to tent camp in mid July 2015. Our site was secluded with lots of trees around our site, so many so that we could hardly see our neighbors; it was just a short... More

Our stay here was excellent! We had a large group and utilized their group site "a". It was very large and had plenty of room for multiple sleeping tents, as well as a screen tent for eating. The pit toilets and water were a short walk away. The campground had many trees, and the sites were spread out- so we... More

We absolutely loved our campsite. It was perfectly secluded and we couldn't see any of our neighbors. Perfect spots for hammocks and shade from the morning sun made our campsite ideal. The lady running the campground was very friendly and welcoming. The showers were metered but provided plenty of time for a shower for $1.50. While we weren't fans of... More

I loved this campsite so much! It was my first camping experience and the first of many! Yolanda the Greek lady was super nice. We stayed at campsite 10 and it was so private! There was only a bench and a firepit but I loved it so much. We basically drove out to the flush toilet whenever we needed to... More

This was our first time at this campground. We stayed during the week, and one of those nights we had no one in our section, so we basically had our own private campground! Pit toilets were decent, as they actually had toilet paper provided and hand sanitizer! One flush toilet up front was handy, too. We stayed in the Hardwoods... More

If your camping priorities have wooded sites, large spaces, and beautiful surroundings at the top then this campground is for you. If you're more into the amenities and mind a rustic setting then this place isn't for you. This campground doesn't have the best facilities but what it lacks in that area it makes up in natural beauty. 1. It's... More

If you like the feeling of being in the woods and having a large campsite, this is the place for you. Lots of trees, soft pine needle covered ground, very quiet while we were there. Showers were good considering it is a mostly rustic facility. Latrines cleaned daily. Though I had an electric site, the tent sites are awesome. Would... More

Let me start by saying that the woman who runs the campground is lovely and went WAY out of her way to make our stay more pleasant. Our campsite was private, tidy, and had a nice flat spot for the tent. It was also poison ivy free (frequent campers often find campsites engulfed in poison ivy). The only downside is... More

I'd hate to give it a good review just because I don't want it to get popular and make it difficult for me to reserve in the future. I think that says it all but since I have to make this review 200 characters... We like rustic camping with just enough amenities which is what makes this place perfect for... More
