This is a relatively nice campground, but there were a few things that we did not like.  Many of the sites are close back to back and very narrow.  Difficult to park tow vehicle in many of the sites.  We felt like our site ( 20C ) was in a parking lot.  In fact, we were in part of what was a parking lot and on the asphalt.  The road to the boat ramp and the restaurant passed in front of our camper.  People with boats had to pull up in front of us so they could back into the boat ramp.  Lots of traffic passing us all day.
