Report: Just came from Spruce Grove Campground and the have the cleanest restroom we have EVER seen. No Joke! Beautiful trails, campsites, and views. We will be back! Campground host was very welcoming and friendly. Located within reasonable driving distance to Eleven Mile & Mueller State Parks for a day event.
Conditions: Our site was shaded well, which was nice during the heat. The large trees in our area also kept us reasonably dry during our day & night of rain.
Water Availability: Campground has water available located at each end of the campground. Walk in sites will have to travel to water pump. Walk in sites are very secluded. All around a beautiful place to enjoy yourself alone or with friend and family. Camp sites are good in size.

Report: This campground has some of the best "Rocks" I've seen surrounding a camp site. They are simply huge! Terryall Creek runs right by and when I stopped in May, it was running strong. Good fishing. Very quiet. The huge rocks that look like they could fall on you at any time add a lot, and the close access to the Terryall Mountain hiking trails are very convenient. Some great vistas if you walk far enough.
Conditions: The RV sites are mostly out in the sun, but the tent sites across the bridge are great.
