Overall: We really enjoyed our stay at Nick's. We had a lake site in loop D and found the site very private and rustic. At night, we had wonderful views of the sunset.
Favorite parts: I loved all the wild life; we heard the loons in the evening and the woodpeckers throughout the day. As we drove in for the first time, we saw a mini Bambi. During a wood run, my husband saw a black bear cross the road in front of his car. We loved this "in the woods" aspect of Nick's. HOWEVER, we also loved its close proximity to Old Forge. We had cell service on our phones and we were close enough to town if we needed something (like milk!).
Wish list: I wish Loop D had its own showers.
Only negative: the young guy at the front gate wasn't very informative. We've been to many campgrounds and were surprised at how much we had to "grill him" for info. Our friends also commented on this... as they had checked in earlier than we had.
We will be back!
