Great Location and History
State park campground built by the CCC shows it’s age. Rough paved access road to a heavily wooded couple of loops with sites featuring power and water. Loop roads are dirt/gravel, narrow and tricky to negotiate with larger rigs. Sites are gravel, dirt, leaves, many require extensive leveling, some drainage issues. Sites have picnic tables, some with gravel areas and landscape timbers, plus fire rings. A few have been regraveled and leveled. Restrooms and shower facilities are adequate. Nice camp store, group bonfire pit, playground, seasonal activities are pluses. When it rains a lot, can be miserable, if it is dry, golf cart traffic stirs up dust. Adjacent lake is silting up, floating swim island covered in bird droppings, old CCC buildings unused and rotting. Picnic tables in the woods above the lake. Used to have boat rentals, check before going if that is a must. Lots of hiking, adjacent Nat’l. Battleground, farm history museum, wildlife viewing offer great recreation.

I have stayed here many times and have never had any problems. The staff is always great and the sites are very well maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone.

A Very Expensive Lesson Learned
Arrived just after dark in a 40 foot MH plus toad due to an hour plus of stop and go on I-85. Navigated very narrow twisting gravel in complete darkness. Didn't see that part of a root that had been removed stuck out 18 inches into the road beyond the tree trunk. Did very expensive damage to the bottom of coach and tow dolly fender. Trees at sites 84 & 85 are too close to road and each other for long wheelbase rigs. See photos.
Campground is built with both loops arranged near the tops of ridges that have ravines on each side. Many sites have moderate to severe levelling problems.
There are twice as many sites as there should be in the space available. You couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting several neighbors.
Door of electrical pedestal came off in my hand. 30 amp circuit breaker pulled out of the box when I switched it off. Weight of electrical cord pulled plug adapter out of outlet so had to rig a bungee cord to keep it in.
Probably a good campground for car camping with kids

Peaceful, Clean, Very Remote
Very clean, nicely wooded, firepits, electric/water all sites and hot showers.
Very remote which has its pros and cons. Very true wilderness camping nestled in the woods, peaceful with natural wildlife. But nowhere close to conveniences nor thruway. Laundry, groceries, dining and neccesities not conveniently located.
Very limited small store and rangers cabin on site.
Accomadates tents and large RVs. Signage getting to campground confusing and obscure. Many visitors get lost trying to get here. Poor phone and wi-fi signal on most carriers.
Disability and senior discount available.
