Fave camp hack: Fill empty milk jugs almost full with water, leaving 2-3" at the top, and freeze. Use in your coolers instead of block or crushed ice! Cleaner, neater, nothing gets soggy. After they thaw, add to your water supply. (Empty milk jugs can also be used as improvised emergency flotation.)

The vibe at Agate Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The hosts were so welcoming, Judy even took me hiking in the coolest spot in the morning. Your campsite is in a perfect location, just paces from the lake. I definitely recommend going to the nearby Veyo Pies, they are to die for.
We had a great time at Miss Judy and Mister Jay's camp! The campsite was simple and beautiful. They had a fire ring and enough wood around the camp for years of fires. We slept to the sounds of toads and the close creek. Miss Judy offered us to come up to their family home in the morning for fresh eggs and milk. I was ecstatic when they shared the experience of milking their cow with me! We also were able to meet two calves that were only a few days old. I highly recommend staying at the Agate camp!
The spot was not bad, but there were other campers very close to our site. There was donkey/dog poop everywhere around our site which made it hard to even walk a few feet. The fire pit was nice and the creek was close by, but we were unaware that you have to pay to get to the reservoir. The positive side was that the owner of the property was incredibly nice and even escorted us to our spot and provided us detailed info about surrounding trails. If I am being totally honest, you can get a lot more bang for your buck in very nearby campsites further down the road that cost the same amount and have a pit toilet. This location had no restroom whatsoever. For a fast booking and a place to stay, I would suggest it but I would not recommend it if someone is planning on staying for a few nights.
