    We arrived Sunday on an early April afternoon to find a "no sites available" sign. Since it was impossible to turn our 38 ft rig around we went on to the camp ground. There were only a few folks in the campground and they were in the process of leaving. Since the "office" wasn't manned we filled in a self serve envelope and inserted a check for $17 (electricity w/ Senior discount). By the time we'd set up we had two more folks pull in. The next morning we were alone before 9 AM. A bit later a park employee came around and placed notes on all the sites reserving them for Friday and Saturday nite!
    Campground 2 provides easy access with several very nice paved pull throughs. The rest are gravel. All the sites have fire rings, a table, and electricity. Water is provided at a couple of places but none at sites. There are no sewer hook up sites. Outer sites have little shelters over the table and are more private. A couple had very abrupt entry grades. No TV reception and limited Verizon cell reception.

    Campground 1 has tight roads and is better suited for small trailers, class Bs, popups, or tents. The tent pads are excellent. Some beautiful views!

    Only a few, small toilets. New 'bath house' wasn't opened for season yet. The dump station (dual lanes) was open and very nicely set up.
    The trails are excellent, well marked and hard surfaced in some places. Note that most have some rather steep sections. The lake is lovely.

    Beautiful, well maintained campground. Make your reservations early for weekend camping!
