This has instantly become one of our favorite parks. Similar to a state park, this reasonably priced Army Corps of Engineers (COE) park is within a beautiful forested area around a lake. As previously posted, there are two major areas within this park. The older Antioch loop is more “rustic”, with some sites not level and all without sewer, but it has its own charm and we wouldn’t mind staying there at all. It is also limited to 30-amp service. Some of the sites we saw that were level, spacious and very nice even for large rigs were #97, #99 and #101 which are all near the lake. Also #88, #124 and #128 were nice, but not as close to the water. There are several other good ones. We stayed at the Catoma loop, which is newer with long concrete pads, full hookups and very generous spacing between sites. Overall this is a quiet and beautiful campground off the beaten path. Showers are clean, hot and powerful. There are laundry rooms with 2 washers and 2 dryers within each loop. There is only one short dedicated walking path, but the road is quiet enough that a long walk or bike ride around the park is easy. The nearest large grocery store is approximately 9 miles away.
