“Best Army Engineers campground I’ve ever slept in by far. Moderately priced, quiet, and far enough off a road only sparsely traversed at night, you’ll find a nice selection of sites among tall trees. I found it nearly bug-free. Best of all, the bathrooms reign supreme among campsites. Free, hot showers. Stainless steel sinks, and super clean. Not the most dramatic scenery – but very pleasant.” – Craig, Yelp review
