    My fiance and I usually camp about once a year for a few nights, so we aren't considered to be the most avid campers. We use tents for a few nights at a time. Anyway, we found this campsite to be very pleasant. The facilities...More

    We are fairly local, but enjoy camping nearby when possible. We made our reservations last minute, and decided to try a cabin. Bare bones, but very clean and great location. Nothing over the top special, but appropriately priced .

    Hello. You mentioned about there being sites with a fence by it. Also sites being right next to the road. Can you advise what sites are by the fence or road? We are looking to stay here over Memorial Day, but can't tell which sites are by the fence or road. Thank you for your time. Kim
