About 10 miles of windy roads with great views of the mountains until you reach your destination. Once you get to the campground, you get to pick out of almost 40 sites with a couple of the sites that are doubles. It's $20 per night with water and restrooms. There is a boat ramp if you're interested in fishing. The campsites have a fire ring, a picnic table and a bear box at each site. There is enough space in between each campsite, where you'll have privacy. A trail is located right from the main road, splitting into two different directions. One trail goes straight to the water with a epic view of the mountains and lake. The other trail is about a mile or two miles; the path isn't well beaten but you'll come across two bridges.
