A15 nice site with room for 5 tents

My stay was great as always. A15 is a nice site. One flat spot for a tent and the slope down to the water isn’t that steep and I slept on it and did fine. There is room for a handful of tents no problem.
The campsite fee increase of $5 was fine but the $10 online service fee was a slap in the face. I’ll just “show up” next time and take my chances. The map for the campground is now impossible to find on the website. The host said it’s there somewhere and offered to provide guidance, but I had already reserved my site through the third party group by then.

This was our first trip to Finnon Lake and it was a wonderful experience. We decided to visit apple hill and stay over night in our trailer. It was about 30 minutes from popular farms and the campground was clean. The host was very friendly and reminded us to take an alternate route if you’re bringing a trailer. If you bring a trailer you must take Rock Creek road instead of mosquito because you won’t make it across the bridge.
All in all we enjoyed our trip and we will be back.

This is a great little campground. The campsites are fairly close together but if you go in the off season only like 20% of the sites are taken and its really nice. The diner was amazing, the hosts were so kind and the other campers were super respectful. We had a great time!

We loved staying at Finnon Lake, site A-15 was great. There is a slight slope but a flat spot
To put a tent and the slope really wasn’t an issue. The hosts are amazing, so nice and helpful. Everything was clean and well kept.

What a lovely gem!!! The drive up Mosquito is really .... wild / steep/ intense. The drive up rock creek is a lot but way less scary :)

We loved staying here, the hosts were super sweet and helpful and lovely. We made friends with many other campers with kids and without (even in a time of COVID where we stayed mostly distant and wiped the bathroom down every time we came/ went but also took some chances (?) letting kids play outdoors together with many hours of swimming and paddle boarding each day!) What a nice respite for us and others which felt relatively very safe.

Franks diner was good - so wonderful to have food to pickup and not have to cook for the last couple meals! (Open Weds-Sun right now or maybe always?)

The only complaint I had was the damn bullfrogs!!! Omg. You laugh - BUT - no joke those suckers are LOUD at night, all night. Nuts. We had ear plugs thank goodness!

A lot of fun and we will be back!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. We loved everything about this place. The Hosts were very nice and even played some music one night which was a real treat. The site was right by the water and very well maintained.

Just a heads up - the lakeside sites can be a little loud at night with the Bullfrogs! It was inconvenient the first night( just because we didn’t expect that) but the second night was fine.

We will definitely be coming back here very soon!

Our camping trip was a blast. We did encounter a city dweller who came into the campground on our third day and was automatically insulted by the fact that kids were running around and things weren’t quiet. She came to meditate and liked our spot better. She even asked to “switch”! The camp host handled the situation professionally And without issue. I will say however that The camp sites are far too close together if you are looking for a campground with wide open quite spaces. if you don’t mind seeing your neighbors then it’s a pretty standard campground.

The frogs are quite loud at night. Our site had one flat space for a tent but got a ton of morning and evening sun. Bring a shade structure. The bathrooms were clean and well kept but there was only one for the entire campground so we frequently had a line.

I would camp here again, it was a blast.

Beautiful location and great campground. The drive in is a little crazy but once you arrive it’s the perfect place to relax.

This is a very quiet and peaceful place! The nature is beautiful out here! And no lies the stars are amazing! We spent 5 days in June and went back for 5 more in July! We had an amazing time both times! Floating in the water! Fishing! Hiking! Eating at franks! There’s one thing that wasn’t the best is the lake has huge shrubs in it and it tangled up in our feet while we swam! We just had to be careful!
