Animal-lovers, come on down to Yellowjacket Campground, only don’t be fooled by its name; this campground is host to loveable creatures. Camping here is amazing. You know, if you like picturesque water-views, hiking trails, and a Mediterranean climate. Sites come with picnic tables, grills, and fire rings. Even toilets are available so if roughing it isn’t exactly your style, you can rest easy knowing “trips” into the woods won’t be necessary. RVs are totally welcome, just know that you won’t find electrical hook-ups.

The fee is $25 and we found an empty spot at site #1. This was a large site, and it is considered "difficult access" because it is a walk-in site. This means you park near the site, but you have a longer walk to where the picnic table and fire ring are located. It is near the bathroom which has a flush toilet. There are many other good sites around, but I would try to get site 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, or 20.
Bring your bikes or take a walk around for exercise. You will find a short 0.8 mi, paved trail that leads from Yellowjacket to Wolf Creek CG to the West. It is a nice walk with views of the lake and a good time to take a break from being inside the campground. The boat ramp parking is a little far from the boat ramp, so expect to walk.
