Description: Set in the foothills so it is hilly and wooded. Paved roadways and newly refreshed campsites (level gravel and new timber edging). Water and electric (50A) at each site along with fire ring. Nice mountain lake. Swim area is in a protected cove. We stayed on site 26 which is a wonderful, large first come site. There are about 60 sites and 80% are reservable. Two dump stations within the park although one was useless with the connection in the middle of the road. (One of my pics is being used on the website for a while)
Activities: Natural setting with hiking trails throughout the park. Mountain biking trails very good here also. Saw several deer during my morning walks. Gin’s cousin Pam came to visit with us and we went to an evening outdoor drama (Tom Dooley; a Wilkes County Legend) presented at the amphitheater in Fort Hamby CG across the Lake. We also went to a wine tasting at Raffaldini Vineyards in the nearby Yadkin River Valley.
Trash and Recycle: Dumpster in middle of park. Small recycle box at the boat ramp.
