  1. Lisa Buck Craig says:

    We camped at Hirz Bay last in Feb 2013. The camp sites are large and not right next to each other. Each site is paved and have nice concrete picnic tables, bear boxes, and fire rings. I’m looking forward to camping there again soon. Campesitephotos.com has done a great job taking photos of each site!

  2. This was my 2nd time camping here, the last time was roughly 8 years ago.

    Pros: Campsites are not on top of each other, there is a good distance. The lake was beautiful, spent most of our time floating and taking in the scenery.

    Cons: No campsite host, there were people making a lot of noise just around midnight, other campsites were yelling at each other to quiet down after 10:00 PM. The bathroom was constantly out of toilet paper so make sure to bring your own. Our campsite was #8, there was barely enough room for 2 tents so I suggest reserving a double site. There were a lot of bugs (mosquitoes), but that’s common with camping. There wasn’t a bunch of space down by the lake for setting up a canopy and chairs, the lake level is pretty high as of July 2019, so make sure to set up your gear early in the morning. You are also a long way away from a store so make sure you bring more than enough food, water and firewood. There was no firewood available at the campground. The campsite was not clean when we got there, a lot of debris, bring a broom and rake if possible. Also there was a House Boat docked by the campground and they were pretty loud.

    I think a lot of the issues we faced would not have happened if there was a campsite host.
