Great place for car camping during Covid! Site had an individual fire ring, grill, picnic table, and space for our 2 tents (could probably fit up to 4 if needed). Ample parking about 20 feet from site. Potable water available from multiple taps Bathrooms were clean and easily accessible. Steps had clearly been taken to ensure safety and health during the pandemic.

This is not private/dispersed camping as there are numerous sites alongside the lakeshore, probably about 40-50 feet apart - which is plenty for social distancing etc but you will certainly see/hear other campers while at your site. Everyone seemed to be quite friendly and respectful of each other - no issues with noise or anything like that.

Area was beautiful - lake was warmer than expected and there were two separate beach areas. Great for swimming, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. Canada Geese mostly kept to themselves. Tons of birds around the lake - including a bald eagle!

There's a cafe at the entrance to the campground that serves food, and also sells cheap firewood and bags of ice (no wood gathering on site).

Eileen was very responsive to questions prior to booking, and Jill was extremely friendly when she stopped by the site in the morning. Thanks to everyone at Finnon Lake for a great stay!

old phone camera cannot do justice to the amazing sunsets! Sites are all placed right on the lakeView of A9 Campsite
