We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful little lake, family-friendliness, and spacious campsites! Possibly my favorite campground of all time for kiddos. As we drove in we were regretting this trip completely (see below), but that COMPLETELY changed once we got there.

Kids had ample room to use their imaginations, climb a tree, ride their bikes, play on the little beach, swim or paddle around on their little youth kayaks. We had a spacious, perfectly shaded and pretty campsite to relax in. Even though it’s September, there was plenty of green around the lake which was nice to just sit and appreciate. Also the water wasn’t gross (yay!).

We had added a night before we even arrived and we ended up so glad we did. We stayed a total of 5 nights and it was the perfect trip for our family.

Eileen, the host, was wonderfully helpful, kindly welcoming, and readily available.

We peaked in bathrooms when we first arrived and they were nice and clean.

The only con I would say: We live in a town where we’re accustomed to the windy-roads galore and tourists hate it...well we felt like the windy-road hating tourists for this trip! Mosquito Road (without a trailer of course) wasn’t a bother though it was surely a little adventure, but Rock Creek Rd was *not* fun with a 28 footer in some spots (narrow, windy, and some significant heights). Just a little nerve wracking, not our favorite! The wonderful reward at the end definitely made up for it for us personally.

We had a wonderful time here! This spot was spacious and shady, and while it isn’t super flat there were a couple decent enough spots for our tents. We all loved being right on the water, the kids were basically swimming from sun up to sun down. The bathrooms were well kept and for the most part all the other campers were chill and kept to themselves.

Pros:
Beautiful spot on the lake. Nice campground and clean bathrooms. Not to many bugs. Cool disk golf course.
Cons:
The geese around the lake made noise all throughout the night and came into my campground many times hissing at me when I tried to shoe them away.
Not a lot of nice places to enter the lake.
Very very windy. I don’t know if I was there at a bad time or because of the elevation it’s at but it was rough.
Left a day early due to geese and wind.

Tons of geese make noise all night. Tons of geese around. Noisy and mean.  Well kept sites Nice campsite on the lake.
