There are 14 individual campsites and 2 group campsites available at this location. Two vault toilets and trash cans are located within the campground.  All sites have a table, grill/fire ring, lantern post and camping pad. These sites are suitable for either tents or RV's. There is no water or electrical hook-ups at this location.  We recommend you bring a cookstove for cooking meals.  This is a very rustic campground.

A small country store is located about 3 miles away in the small community called Eldorado.  This store is north of the intersection of Ophir Road and NC Hwy 109N.
