If you want to be in the middle of nowhere I would recommend this spot. That's exactly what I was looking for! But..when I got there and the mosquitoes were constantly swarming my body and the other RV campers told me of the wolf pack that had been circling the site I had some other thoughts. There's a 35 acre lake for swimming and boating and some giant snapping turtles that seemed to be invading the area when we were there. I'm 100% sure my dog had a growl off with a wolf in the woods and I threw rocks to keep them at bay. We were going to spend 2 night tent camping, but ended up one night and slept in my car till the morning. I will say it's definitely secluded and gorgeous. Go check it out, but sleep indoors and bring lots of bug spray
