Nice little lake
It’s a pretty little lake and other campers were friendly and quiet on a Tuesday night. The bathroom was clean, but the women’s was out of toilet paper. We went to view the meteor shower, but there was too much light pollution and haze to see many at this elevation. We might go back with the kayaks sometime.
Super personable and quick to answer any questions you might have. Played music for too long in our truck and they sent someone out to jump the battery. Overall an amazing experience and camp ground. The view of the stars was equally amazing!!! 5 Stars!
Do not book the b-numbered spots
We left without staying a single night. I think there are nice sites at this camp, but B4 is not one of them. From what I saw, all of the B-numbered campsites are on this meridian that are in the middle of a dirt road that everyone frequents. It feels like you are on display. Really this area should be utilized for a junglegym or common picnic area instead of campsites.
My particular spot B4 was right by the dumpsters and the bathrooms. So there was A LOT of people traffic, garbage, and smell. Also, there were a ton of flies.
Our particular campsite had a lot of debris and garbage. Our firepit was full of garbage for some reason. There were oddley a ton of empty buckets... Come to find the only water spout for everyone was on B4 so people were coming and going for water as well sometimes just leaving their buckets behind.
Basically we left without even thinking of putting up our tent. We were hoping for a quiet getaway from the city and this was just not at all as we had expected.
We had an amazing and relaxing time! Enjoyed how clean the whole camp ground and the bathrooms were. Everyone was super friendly and respectful! Would highly recommend it if you’ve never been!
Finnon lake camping / disc golf
The lake is beautiful. Frank’s diner has awesome food! Everyone had fun swimming, fishing and disc golfing! There’s only one restroom, but they are clean with running water. I look forward to going back!
Enjoyed a wonderful camping experience. B-4 is a little small of a spot but our group had the spot next to us making it more than enough. Next to the bathroom which was great for kids. We will be coming back.
