Every morning and evening, the white-tailed deer would come to the edge of the campground to feed. They were camera shy, however, and most would scamper off before I could get a good shot.
The Upper Loop (sites 1-47) may lack privacy, but you get to see the deer (above), have full hookups, and good boating access to the Lake. Below are sites 13, 23, and 30:
The Middle Loop (sites 48-72) is best for bikers (sites 48-56), as motor vehicles are not allowed. The others (57-72) are non-reservable, and best for tents, camper vans, and small RVs (no hookups). Below are sites 48, 49, and 50:
The Lower Loop (sites 73-82) provides the greatest privacy, the best swimming area, and requires reservations. Sites 73-76 are walk-in sites. Below are sites 75, 77, and 80:
