We camped in the full hook up section, which was a good experience. Camp sites were for the most part fairly level and paved. Park was clean and maintained. Will put this on our list of favorite places to camp.

Nice place to camp. The lake at Starve Hallow is beautiful. The camping sites are spacious. You can swim but there are no life guards.
