Family fun? Flush toilets? Firewood for sale? Enough with the F’s, this campground deserves an A+! There are 6 loops perfect for large tent cities and RVs: Ponderosa and Pine are on the shores of the lake, Fir and Aspen are in the middle with electric and water hookups, and Cedar and Cottonwood are the furthest with full hook-ups.
