Impressions:

1) This is one of the older COE campgrounds we have stayed in throughout the southeast, evident by the size of each site.  However, all the sites are paved with gravel porches and lots of shade trees.  All of the sites are back-in and limited in size to around 50 feet.

2) The COE volunteers were friendly and helpful, even offering suggestions on sites other then the one we had reserved that were on the water.  However, these sites would have been difficult to get into, so we stayed with the one we reserved.
