    The place is kept very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. However, the sites are VERY close together. There is no privacy whatsoever. Also, the gravel is made of large, sharp chunks of rock, not the nice small kind. It was pretty uncomfortable to sleep on, even with a double-thickness of tarp under the tent AND an egg crate mattress under the sleeping bag. We had a hard time sleeping because of the noise of so many other campers and their kids, dogs, blenders(?!), etc. close by.I saw other reviews saying the same, but decided to take a chance… We still had a relatively good time, but we really would have preferred something more private and quiet. Our kids (ages 3 and 5) were especially bothered by all the noise while trying to go to sleep.We rented a canoe and paddled to Hooker Falls (about 35 minutes one way.) Beautiful! I highly recommend taking the excursion. It was nice having the general store on the grounds, too. They sell firewood there, which really came in handy since we didn’t bring enough with us.The swimming area is very nice, too. Our kids really enjoyed it.

    An older campground buried in a temperate rain forest south of Pisgah National Forest. Has lots of charm and good lake access plus some lake side rv sites. Unique compared to other lakeside campgrounds there are full hookups for many of the lake sites. A separate swimming pond was clean, well kept and with good water quality. The lake is good for kayak/canoeing with a nice water fall only a mile row away.Neighboring Dupont State Forest is packed with hiking trails and other waterfalls (some pretty good ones too).Only criticism are the largely poor condition gravel roads and limited wifi. Also be prepared for lots of rain. Prices are so-so and there’s a 2 week max stay.

    Wonderful campground. Just returned from a wonderful family camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed it so much we have already reserved spots for the fall! Our families rented 3 sites. A lot of sites are very narrow. There is not much privacy between campsites. Only a few could hold more than one large tent. There is no campfire grate provided. One of our site’s electrical outlet did not work but the hosts responded immediately and got it fixed within the hour. The only downside for us to the campsite: the water from the water spigot gets rusty=brown when not consistently used so you waste a lot of water letting it run to get it clear. The hosts regularly drive around the campground; so, everything is very peaceful and pretty quiet. It seemed like everyone brought their dog, including us. 🙂 Unfortunately, not everyone picked up after their dogs. Doggy waste bags are even stapled around the campground.I think the bath houses are all different sizes. I used 3 different ones while there. The bathroom by D10 was the largest: 3 toilet stalls and 3 showers. The bathrooms were freshly painted and kept exceptionally clean for campground bathrooms. The hosts were constantly in there and swept/mopped at least 4 times a day from what I saw. I was very impressed. If you want to swim, fish, kayak/canoe, visit Dupont State Park or just hang out, this is the perfect place to do it.

    Was ok at best.Very crowded and loud.Not the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered.My family and I left early because of the lack of quietness.

    Love that you can come and swim with day passes and enjoy the fun without having to be there and camp! We love coming and enjoying the lake experience with younger kids and then being able to take them home tired and satisfied! LOL Love being LOCAL!!!
