Comments: . A wonderful campground nestled in the woods with many waterfront sites. The hosts were terrific, the firewood was good quality and very inexpensive, and the atmosphere was great. A definite plus in our books.
The treed area around the campsite was lovely yet still offered views of the lake along with lots of squirrel activity.
Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area is just a few minutes from the campground and offers a visitor center along with multiple shoreline campgrounds and lots of scenic drives through woods and along the shore.
