We were a bit surprised when we checked ReserveAmerica for availability here to learn that there were a good number of empty sites, so we decided not to bother with a reservation. We arrived in the early afternoon on a mid-March Monday and had no problems getting a site. We chose site 8 for its privacy. Despite all those trees in the background, I was able to set up our satellite TV dish.

Sites 1 and 3 are "partner" sites, great for friends or family who want to camp together. There are a number of similar sites throughout the campground.

Let's go take a look at the Lakeside campground loop. These are considered premium sites and the Senior Discount does not apply to them. Here are sites 50, 52 and 54. Just behind them, out of sight, is site 55, which faces the lake, is quite private and in my view is the most desirable site in the park (yes, I know, I should have a picture of it)..

Sites 65-67 all back-up to the lakeshore.

Sites 69-71.
