This place is beautiful! Lots of trees and granite everywhere. The campground feels very spacious. The reservoir does not allow motorized boats. The boat ramp and day use area is free to use! The toilets are all vaults here. Check in time is 2:00 p.m. Check out time is 1:00 p.m.
Reservations are $25. This campground takes reservations and does fill up during the busy season. There are 50 sites and 2 are group sites ($50).The best will be to bring your kayaks, paddle boards, or anything to take out on the lake. There is a fishing pier and a good spot to take photos.
We loved this place. Very pretty, relatively quiet, well-maintained. No cell service, which was a plus for me, but would have been good to know ahead of time as it's a little tricky to find. We never saw a sign for the forest road we were to turn on; it's labeled Wentworth on the signs. You might hear the Deliverance theme in your head as you drive down that road, but it gets better once you turn into the campground.
Good place for families. Lots of dirt to dig in, nice, easy trails to hike, reasonably clean toilets, quiet at night.
There were quite a few dogs and no one had them leashed at their campsites. Several wandered and while we didn't have any problems, it might not be good for those who are afraid of dogs.
We plan to return.
