We actually stayed here in July 2008. This is a beautiful campground and exactly what we look for. Very forested setting with sites that have privacy. We came in late at night and while we were unable to get a water front site, I still rate this campground as a 10. We originally planned on staying one day as a stop over, but couldn't bring ourselves to leave. We ended up staying 3 days and changing our plans. The lake is one of the nicer ones I've been to. While there were boats out on the lake, it was not too much to take away from the setting. The beach area was nice for the kids. The campground is not to far from Apex so you can take a drive in to re-supply, etc. We would love to come back and stay longer.
We actually visited in July 2008, but option not given above. Many of the things listed by others is correct with regard to the campground. It is tricky navigating the roads, especially the tight turn at the bottom, but nothing to make you avoid this place. Many of the sites are right on top of each other, but it appeared that most were the inside/interior ones. We had site #8 and it was great. Most along that side and up into the 30s are pretty nice. I also agree that the utilities seems to be placed strangely. We had to run our electric under the motor home and across the middle of the site. There is nothing spectacular about the rest rooms, but heck, we're used to state parks, etc. The park itself is very large. I would suggest that you have a means of transportation. At a minimum I would suggest good bikes and be in shape! One of the better caves is Cascade Cave and it is far from the campground. You will need to drive to it. Even with the negative aspects, overall the park is nice. The cave tours are great. Each is different. One evening they had ghost stories inside the entrance to Cascade cave. The kids loved it. The area with of the Natural Bridge is beautiful. We didn't get to see everything and would stay again
