Not awful, but not our favorite either.

First off, the people who run this campground were friendly and helpful. The campground is fairly spread out with some larger, more communal camping areas and some areas that have a little more privacy. Our spot, #25, was very secluded with great shade and plenty of room. One thing we realized right away was that the fire pit did not have a grate. We were lucky that one of the people in the group found someone to lend him one, I think he borrowed it from the campground employees, not certain though. Ok, so here are some of the things I found not to my liking: I hated that every SINGLE time I tried to use the ladies room, there was ALWAYS someone in it. I have never been camping where I literally could not find a time, day or night to have a little 3 or 4 minute "alone time" to relieve myself. I don't do well with going number 2 if I don't get a little privacy so I was constipated by the time I got home (we camped fri-sun). NOT FUN. I personally won't be camping anywhere where the toilets and the showers share a room. For this reason alone, I would never return. Also, the lake access, unless you have a boat, is minimal. My husband tried to fish at the "fishing spot" at the end of the fishing trail which is basically used for boats to pick up passengers or just come park and scare away any hopes of catching a fish. And, don't expect any consideration by these boat owners because they could give a rat's ass if you want to have a quiet tiny part of the lake to fish in. The people at the lake are mostly boaters so you have that "element" of younger, partier types who bring their family and friend's families to spend out on the boat all day. Which is great for them, but not our kind of place as we are nearing 40 and like to relax and enjoy mellow times with friends instead of booze fueled random screaming and yelling (which is GREAT if you're 24-35, right?) Anyway, we nearly never saw the lake because of all of the trees and unless you go to the swimming area or down the fishing trail, glimpses are about all you'll get of the lake when in the car. The swimming hole is, simply put, disappointing. Everyone in the campground packed onto one very small beach area with virtually no shade. It was less than inviting. Not a place we will return.
