We arrived late one morning, and plenty of sites to choose from. As we were looking for a site, we passed another Lazy Daze, with Alabama plates. So we decided to take the site in front of it, #41. A few minutes later, the AL folks came back to their rig....it turned out we had met them earlier this year in Florida!

Date of visit: Mar 2008

Sites for RV's are generally quite small and are mostly pull-offs along the camp road. It's obvious that this is primarily a tenter's campground.

This was one of my favorite sites, although not suitable for even a small RV.

Scattered through the campground are these small vault toilets. No showers.
