Report: This campground was very good. The campsites were spaced far from each other, and the views of the surrounding forest were great. Try to get a campground situated right on the base the mountain, they are more secluded. It's about a five minute hike to get to the creek and a short drive to get to the lake. The fishing in the lake was poor, but in the creek it was fair. Overall, this campground was pretty good.
Conditions: This campground had a moderate amount of bugs, so bring repelent. The sites are well shaded and secluded.
Water Availability: There is water at the campground, and it is clean, but bring your own just in case.
