Easy access to the lake with all the amenities. Family friendly and a great staff. Meeks Bay trail head is a short walk away.

The great thing about the campground is the close access to the beach/lake. It is only about a 2-3 minute walk, depending on which campsite you're walking from. The Meeks Bay trail head is also across the street and about 25 yards down the road. In general, it's a beautiful campground for families/large groups. The sites are sandy and pretty flat. Don't forget to check out the local farmers market (May-Oct, every Thursday, 8-1) http://www.foothillfarmersmarket.com for local fruit, veggies and everything else.

Best way to experience the lake

There's nothing better than waking up and already being by the lake! Its beautiful in the early morning sun, and there's not many people so this is the most peaceful time.

Nice campground. Cozy beach.

Grounds are well maintained. Good for family camping. Beach is nicely nestled in a low wind area.
