Located under tall pines and hardwoods, each of the 40 campsites is equipped with a picnic table, fire ring and lantern poles. Two of these sites only allow double occupancy. Electrical hookups are available at 24 sites. The campground offers showers, restrooms, drinking water and a trailer dump station for registered campers’ use.
Users can stretch their legs on an accessible one-mile trail that winds through the mixed pine-hardwood forest near both the campground and picnic area. More than five additional miles are also available to bikers and hikers, but no motorized vehicles or horses are allowed.
