Make a reservation if you have a rig over 30 feet. There are many sites, paved and gravel, that can easily hold 40+ foot units. Beware of "pull thru" descriptions. The best sites are back-ins. Pull thru sites are overgrown and curved. Plenty of water. No dump station or trash. Easy to access. Paved roads all the way into and throughout the camp. A great place to ATV, hike and mountain bike. Nearest fuel is 12 miles away. I towed my 39 ft TT through the entire camp loop and brushed some minor branches but overall an easy drive. Bring firewood.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
