It’s a beautiful area with nice facilities. Campsites are spacious and clean. Did not realize how windy the road was to get there.

First of all, the lake and campsites were nice and the facilities were clean. The camp hosts, when I called early Saturday morning was nice, but she had bad news: the site I had reserved, which the website says accommodates a 45’ motor home, would likely not accommodate my 32’ motor home. We made it work, but we were taking up some of our neighbor’s site and sticking out in the road just a bit.

Even if the site accommodated a 45’ motor home, neither of the two roads into the sit would accommodate a vehicle of that length! The camp host needs to be more clear in their directions that one route (the route GPS takes you on from almost any direction) will NOT accommodate vehicles longer than 25’, wider than 8’, or heavier than 5 tons. Also trailers on this road are prohibited for good reason!

The only other route in will accommodate a Class A motor home, but you’re going to spend 45 minutes or more on a 9-mile single-lane road with 2-way traffic and multiple tight and blind corners, in addition to the several miles on route 193 which has some tight corners and several miles of steep (11%) up and down grades.

I would LOVE to return to this site, but when I do, it’ll be in a tent instead of a motorhome!
