This review is favorable because of the campground, which is separated from the day use lake beach by a key coded gate.
That is an important distinction because the lake beach is PACKED, while the campground has a nice peaceful, quiet feel to it.
We stayed at sight 18, in the Birch loop, June 28th, 2013
The campground is probably one of my newly discovered favorites! The sites have a nice quite, nestled feeling to them. The sites are well spaced apart, and the bathroom wasn't too lit up, like at Rocky Gap.
The campground is nestled among both tall trees, with Forrest edge plants around each site. For example, smaller trees, and Mountain laurel.
Clean enough, with enough stalls, and one shower stall. What was missing from the bathroom area was an area to wash your dishes.
I would have liked to seen a few larger trash cans near the bathrooms, but they have 3 large dumpsters as you leave the park area.
The camp store:
This is no camp store. It is more of a grill that serves the beach goers.
A pretty little lake, that is packed with families and their children. You can hear the drone of people from the time you get out of your car in the parking lot.
This campground has quite a few hiking trails. Unfortunately, it was hot, and my leg was bothering me, so we didn't try any of them this time around.
There is always a long line of cars to get into the day use area.
After you come into the camp ground, you will turn left at the bottom of the hill to go through the gate, and into the camping area.
If you wanted to go to the day access lake, you will turn right.
