We use the term “primitive” loosely at Shinnery Ridge West campground. Though the nearest restroom is 200 yards (1 mile) away, that just means you’ll really make those bathroom runs count. With easy access to Lake Meridian--lakefront property, yo--campsites are fully equipped with a picnic table, fire ring with fold-away grill, waist high barbeque grill (because one grill isn’t enough, you Gordon Ramsay, you) and lantern pole. Stay here and say you roughed it in the primitive sites, it’ll be our little secret.

Campsites 28 and 29 are away from the other sites, tucked in between the road and the lake. Although they're labeled "primitive" the sites come with a nice tent pad, picnic table, fire pit and grill.

Sites 30 & 31 are positioned directly on the lake which makes for wonderful views, but they're more exposed than the other primitive sites. Located next to a large parking lot - great for larger groups, fishers, and day-long parties, separated from the crowd.
