Because we have a wooded setting, sites vary slightly depending on the placement of trees on each site. Each RV site has room for an RV, picnic table, fire ring, and 2 vehicles. We note the length and height of every RV during reservation confirmation, and do our best to take that into account. RV owners are welcome to make another selection amongst available sites upon arrival should they prefer a different setting once on site.

Each one of our 10 tent sites can accommodate several large tents. All sites start lakefront, are shaded by trees, and extend up to the access road.
