  • Very pretty clean lake Great place for locals to swim, picnic, fish, or enjoy the beauty Also a great place for anyone traveling thru Definitely worth a see
  • Great park level sites, 50/30amp, water and dump stations.
  • Bandits Roost campground is great!! We visit here every summer. Love the swim beach. Bathrooms are old but very clean and sufficient. Quite a few empty sites even tho the website shows they are booked, frustrating.
  • Just an awesome place to camp and mountain bike. Clean bath house's. Very well marked trails. Got rained on the last 3 miles of the ride. Those trails flow like a creek when it rains hard. Very friendly and helpfull camp ground host's. If you want fire wood don't forget to bring cash. Camp site's get reserved fast. Plan ahead. Water and electric at all tent sites, that's very nice to have. It is a walk or short bike ride to bath house. Overall a great place.
  • Very clean lake caught fish and had great views.
