We stayed at this campground right after the state fair, so we had our pick of sites. Good thing, too....there are very few sites that are level. This is an extremely hilly camping area, so good jacks are necessary. The daily rate is excellent, and it's just a short drive to the heart of DM.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
