We absolutely loved our stay here. Our camping spot was very private and tree'd in and backed onto the lake. Great walking trails, nice beach, boat launch area! It's about a half and half mix of powered and non powered sites. You also need to...More

This is a good little campground on the shores of Garner Lake. The campground itself is quiet but can be small and tight in areas. The playground is brand new and has pay showers. The lake itself is low and doesn't have the best beach...More

We made our first visit on the May long weekend and liked this place. The campground is smaller, which is nice because it's quieter. The sites are pretty private - there were no leaves on the trees yet when we were there so it was...More
