Recommend to a Friend: Highly
Report: Great place for family camping. Quiet, tucked away, good fishing. Caretakers are very nice. Campsites 13 & 11 are the best.
Conditions: I went 3 times last summer. In late August, the lake had dried up a bit which ruined the swimming. There is plenty of fallen dry wood that you can collect for firewood.
Water Availability: Good access to Union Reservoir from almost every campsite.
