    Since it is a small facility, they ask that you call ahead of time to confirm that a site will be available. We called two days before our planned arrival and Campground Manager Carl told us there would be no problem. When we arrived at noon, we had a choice of six sites - we chose lucky site 13.

    Sites 6, 7 and 8 are back-in sites near the park entrance.

    Site 9 is a pull-through site.

    In the center of the campground right in front of the bathhouse are pull-through sites 10 and 11. These do not have a paved parking pad.

    The other site without a hard pad is 12.

    The bathhouse is quite primitive, but is does provide the basics. Each half is nothing more than a large bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower all out in the open - no privacy. If you're drying off after a shower and someone opens the door, there you are for all the world to see.


    13 sites: W/E(20/30/50A)/S - $20

    Undesignated tent sites - $5
