  • Nice RV campgrounds near hiking trails. Pros to camping: roomy sites, not too crowded, shaded in the woods, very kid friendly, looks like everyone was having a fun time, easy access to hiking through the forest, paved drives with water and 30amp, table and lantern stand. Cons: many of the sites were very unlevel. Not a big deal, but we switched sites because of it. One other drawback was a $5 extra reservation fee. Otherwise, very friendly rangers and neighbors
  • Unfortunately, I camped with a tent on an RV site. The areas for a tent were all covered with leaves. I picked the best spot(?) but it had fairly large rocks under the leaves. Needless to say that, even with two folded quilts under my sleeping bag, the sleep wasn't all that restful. I'm going again but will use a tent site which is made for a tent.
  • The disc golf course is fun to play. Some of the tee positions are confusing. Tall pine trees are the theme. The river is also fun to play in and cool off. Bring a picnic lunch and make it a day.
  • Friendly staff, well maintained. I enjoy camping there every chance I get. The camp hosts are always pleasant, and made special accommodations for us when the camp site was completely booked.
  • Quiet campground, clean bathrooms, enjoyable trails (hiking trails are on the easy side). Really enjoyed the fall foliage and letting my dog swim in the river.
