Sprawling, wooded sites offer plenty of privacy. There are trails to the beach from every loop in the campground, and the trails are beautifully - straight downhill to the campground to the lake, though, so by the time to huff it back to the campground, you're ready for another swim. Highlights: Vista Trail, super rope swing, swimming in the clearest turquoise water, and the little old graveyard off the meadow trail. Favorite site: Hawthorne Lean-to.
