This a fantastic surprise for any camper. This campground is surrounded by Cordell Hull lake and is so well groomed that it has a true resort feel. There are tennis courts, basketball courts and hiking trails. There are campsites suited to all types of camping from tents to large motorhomes. Most of the sites are over 65 feet long. All have water and electric, 30/50 amp service. Premium site along the edge of the lake also have sewer and very level gravel pads. There is a boat launch area just for those camping at the campground. There is also a separate marina with a nice café and a small store with a little bit of everything including hand dipped ice cream. Nearby is historic Granville that is worth a visit. The city of Carthage is about 20 minutes away. The best part of this beautiful campground is the price. Premium sites are only $25 a night and other sites are as low as $18. For seniors with a national park senior pass, the price is one half of this. I can't imagine a better place to camp for $12.50 a night for a full hookup site with a level gravel pad and a beautiful view of the lake. Other sites are $9 a night. I have camped for over 40 years in all 50 states and have to say this campground is as nice as any I have seen.
