Friends of ours kept telling us what a great spot this was. We are all sailors. The lake is pretty good for small sailboats. Since we also have a very large travel trailer 31' we decided to take a drive up and see what the campground looked like, as far as our manuvering our trailer there. The website made the place look very inviting. And it is quite popular as they are booked up for most of the summer months. I just don't understand why, or I guess I do, if you like dirt, being close together, on the side of a hill with lots and lots of motorcycles and ATVS driving by constantly then this is paradise. Not to mention it is on the high end of the price per night for camping. Well, the campground is nothing but dirt on sidehills. There are a lot of 5th wheels there, (which are much more manuverable than a pull trailer) however, from the looks of things, I beleive most of the larger RV come early in the season and leave them here. The word "shanty town" immediately came to mind. We are not snobby campers, but this place was just not our style at all, lots and lots of dirt, I was happy to see the "resort" has a water truck which makes the rounds wetting down the well-traveled (constantly by ATV's) in an effort to mitigate the thick fine dust. We ate lunch in the resort restaurant and were very happy witht the regular hamburger we ordered. Very tasty and not overdone and the staff was very nice. Not too much of any beaches for little kids, and what beach was there was also dirt, not sand. I like to camp but not in the 3" deep dust and dirt and on the side of a hill. And by the way, we probably could have manuvered our trailer into a few spots, but with a lot of hassle and why? So many more lovely places to go. This place would be great if you were ATV enthuiasts, which we are not. Other than that a day trip for fishing would be great. Beautiful lake.
