Beautiful site. Very nice campsites. Clean bathroom. Rock creek road is quite narrow and windy-not comfortable if you are a new RVer. Franks diner was fabulous too.

Quiet, peaceful, and beautiful! We always have a wonderful time at Finnion Lake. Small slice of heaven!

Beautiful reservoir, bad campsite

Loved the reservoir. Beautiful for swimming and relaxing water sports. Definitely will be back for that part of it! We were very disappointed in our campsite. As first time campers to this campground, we got the only site that was available when we booked. It was surprising that a site like this even exists in a campground like that. It was not level, so it made putting up a tent very difficult. Although it was considered Lakeview, it was also too close to the bathrooms and dumpsters. Anytime someone went in regardless of time of night, the doors would slam and the motion lights would pop on which would shine into the tent. The grounds were all dry starthistle and there was a terrible bee problem. We are avid campers so these factors were very disappointing. The camp host seemed unavailable after sunset. Late comers came into the campground around 9:45 PM, and chopped wood while yelling at each other until midnight. They were up chopping wood and yelling again before 6 AM the next morning, which woke many in the campground up. We ended up leaving early because of the noise and campsite difficulties.

Easy to find.
Well marked camp sites.
Very clean and functional bathrooms.
B-6 is a little sloped but not too bad. We barely noticed once’s in the tent.
Great views of the water!!!
Would stay again.

Beautiful views from the lake and close to the bathrooms, which was nice if you had to go during the middle of the night!

I found this place by accident but glad i did. The grounds are clean, quiet, and close to the water. No showers but they have flushable toilets. The bathrroms are very clean and stocked. The hosts are amazing and friendly people. I will be going back at some point hopefully soon.

Very nice property, with good bathroom facilities and trails/frisbee golf course. Night time chorus of frogs interrupted occasionally by geese honks. Spotted a bald eagle by the lake in the morning. Nice tree canopy in the camp area, pretty meadows along the trail. Campsites are close to other, which created a communal feeling. One party offered their leftover stash of firewood, which was very nice. I would recommend.
