  • Great area with decent facilities. Camped at Overlook, lots of gravel and picnic tables. Had one very large grill and one smaller one. Came with a large fire pit (bring your own wood) with a grill that can be set over it. The grill for the pit and the smaller grill were both rusty however. The are was very well graveled, struggled though to find good flat places just outside the gravel to set tents. Very thankful for the bathrooms, no mirrors though.
  • Beautiful lake with plenty of space to fish, go boating, jet skiing, etc. Some nice picnic areas open to anyone and the forest is clear so it's easy to traverse through. Hiking trails are nice, but there's not many of them. Plus, theres a bunch of great cedars. The recreation area has a nice pier to walk to as well.
  • The camp sites were shaded & had plenty of room. The sites have fire pits & picnic tables. They have late check-ins but also late check-outs.
  • Could be a little more neatly. But very quiet relaxed place to be with the fam. Kid friendly too.
  • Rolling View is a great campsite. We've stayed there twice with family/friends and it's always a positive experience.
