What People Are Saying About Blackwell Family Campground

“This place was huge and a great drive to look at the fall colors. It just kept going and going and going. I would love to come back in the summer and check out the trails, but gorgeous to look at fall colors on the trees. And the lake was huge.” – Chris, TripAdvisor Review
