After checking in the park office near Exit 98, one has to leave the park to drive around to the campground, about two miles away. This is the first view you get of the camping area.

Date of visit: Mar 2007

We arrived about noon on a Monday and had no problem getting a site. We were assigned site #4 beside the small lake. We were lucky in having a site with a hole in the trees in the right direction for our satellite dish.

Sites 12, 11, and 9 along the lake. The folks on the left have the right idea - check out the hammock by the shore.

Sites are shaded, but not dark.

In the foreground is site 25, with 22 just beyond. The RV on the left is on 24; the two in the background near the lake are on 20 (middle) and 19 (right).

Apparently there is a threat of flooding here, for the bathhouse is built up on pilings. An average bathhouse, shower privacy is lacking.

Seems like they ought to consolidate all these signs into one.

Note the gravel road: it was VERY dusty while we were there. One has to put up with the spring pollen as well as the dust from passing vehicles.
