    Anybody have any feedback on the 3 different sections in this park? I know that there are no hookup at the lakeside loop but what about the other 2 White Oak and Whispering Pines? BTW, is Whispering Pines new or was it just fully booked last year when I was checking out the Park?

    This campground moved into the number 1 spot for us. We stayed in the White Oak loop. You can drive through and pick your own site. All the sites in this loop are big. Our site was huge. I drove through the lake front loop. Didn't care for it as much. There were some lake front sites which were nice but much closer together. The campground had good hiking and very nice lake with swimming and boat rentals. I don't recall how the Whispering Pines loop was but I definitely liked the White Oak loop the best. White Oak does have water and electric.

    I can't seem to post a picture to save my life. If it works.... this is our site. I'm standing at about half way in from the road so there is equal distance back up to the street.

    This is down the back side of our site. Great for exploring.

    Howdy Pup! What site was that you were on? Just curious! It looks like a great place and is only an hour from me!! I'm SOSOSO glad I looked at this, because if I had before, I sure forgot about it!!

    Definitely going to have to watch that place once all this medical crap gets worked out. THANKS for the great photos!

    Hhhmmmmm......how far back must I follow you, so as not to be accused of stalking? [LOL] [LOL] [LOL]

    Actually, if the knee is done by then, and I can find a dog sitter, I might actually consider that! If not, there's always another weekend. [;)]

    We stayed here this past weekend in the White Oak Loop. I haven't been there since I was a kid (back in those days, IIRC, only Lakeside and Beaverdam were there).

    Kids had a blast, I enjoyed the awesome thunderstorm that passed through Friday night.

    Probably one of my favorite SPs.
