A truly beautiful grounds on an equally beautiful portion of Big Sugar Creek, bordering the future Big Sugar Creek State Park.
Value, however, is a problem. In recent years fees increases have spiked, often dramatically.
The campground offers a generously sized covered pavilion, as well as an indoor kitchen/dining area that can accommodate larger groups. While the bathhouse is clean enough, the odor during warmer months can be a problem.
Stream access could be better with a bit of work. The ramp area is frequently clogged with downed tress which don't seem to get cleared away any more. Otherwise, a nice deep hole is available immediately upstream of the ramp, and shallower water for wading abounds.
