2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this campground in our small trailer. We chose it because it has 30 miles of trails for dirt bikes, ATV's and jeeps. Trails were great! The campground is very secluded, the lakes are beautiful, and overall it is a lovely setting.

This campground is best suited for dry camping. Although this is a HUGE campground with LOTS of beautiful wooded sites, there are only a few sites with water and electric and they are in the sun.
The sites are large and with nice fire rings. However, the restrooms are dirty and despite our request to refill, they were without toilet paper. There is only one shower facility and it was gross. There is no camp store or snack bar. There is one dump station that does not meet normal RV
standards. Luckily, our trailer was small enough to back in next to it, but it was a challenge.

This campground has the potential to be so much more with just a small amount of TLC from the owner. We were charged $40 night and for that amount, we were expecting at least clean toilets, latches on the toilet stalls, sinks in the bathrooms, and a hose to use at the dump site. We are glad we went, especially for the trails, but we probably will not return there with an RV. If you are dry camping and don't need to use their facilities, this is an excellent place to enjoy nature.

We always get the site we want. The showers have hot water, my only complaint would be the lack of hooks to hang your clothes from in some of the showers and the floor floods since the shower water that falls on the floor has nowhere to go. I heard they are tightening up the firing range. I applaud them for this! My other concern is the cost to stay here. its a bit pricey compared to other campgrounds that are nearby. I highly recommend this place!
