|Author review : July 2010|
We stayed here for the July long weekend. The campground is simple but was a lot of fun. It would have been good to know that there was only well water before we got there so we could have packed more water. As for the sites, close to the highway was loud, but they were nicely treed and private. There were some treed sites on the north end of the campground which would have been nice. The sites in the middle of the campground were mowed out of the grass, so very open.With the Heart trails and the lake right there, it’s easy to stay entertained, but if you’re looking for “fancy” full services this isn’t the campground for you.
