I have camped there for several years in June. The campground is well maintained, but bring your own toilet paper and shower tent.. The three hydrants provide good water. Only once was a neighboring group too rowdy after midnight, and I had to go and have a talk with them. Fontana Lake is beyond beautiful in that area, with wilderness on both sides. It is directly across the lake for Hazel Creek, the nicest flat water paddle I have ever done.
