We have been camping at Sweetwater Forest for about 8 years now, and our family (3 generations) have enjoyed our stays. The facility is family-owned and we find them to be friendly and reasonable to deal with. The sites are ample sizes and cater to all sorts of equipment--tents, pop-ups, large trailers. While it is true there is no on-site swimming, there is a pond where you can fish or go out in a canoe/rowboat. The location of the campground is quite easy to get to and there are lots of things to do in the area. We enjoy walking through the grounds, also.
The owners are very generous with special events--such as the make-your-own-sundae and pizza parties, as well as the recent Labor Day Barbecue which featured a live band, wine & beer and a catered western-style meal, as well as a raffle--all FREE. This was a great celebration of their 50th year. Unfortunately, some person or persons chose to steal the donation box set up near the food area, which most of the campers in attendance had contributed to. We were very upset to learn the next morning that some people have no conscience and obviously no morals to do something like this.
