This campground will be closed until 2021 for maintenance on the dam. Bummer, because it’s a really lovely and mostly unknown spot. Campground on the right side a the top of the lake is accessible to power boats (10 mph only) and the one on the left is only accessible by kayak or canoe. It’s about an hour paddle, and really easy for novices (like me). The water is super clear, and looked like good fishing. Hopefully the “improvements” being made to the lake won’t put it on the radar, I can’t wait to go back when it’s open again.
