    Although the campsites were nice and the lake was beautiful, the campground managers were so over the top rigid and aggressive and over zealous in enforcing petty rules, it made an ordinarily happy week a drag. I know that the 21 or so people who came during that week at different times will never camp at this campsite again due to their harassment at every turn, I know that I won’t. We in the camp dubbed them the ‘camp Nazis’ and the ‘Fun Police.’ I strongly advise against choosing this campsite.

    1. Dee McNamara says:

      I had a similar experience hiking through the area on the 13-mile around the lake trail. Truly over the top, verging on harassment. I feel that the reviewer from 2012 did not exaggerate in any way. I wonder if it is the same couple that managed to stay on all these years despite ruining the experience for so many in this beautiful place. They are truly so off-putting I surprised if they managed to maintain their positions there year after year.

      Thanks for the heads up Dennis! We will plan on re-shooting the campground to get new/accurate campsite photos.

    Has anyone stayed at one of the 8 cabins at Timothy Lake (Oak Fork)? I cannot seem to be able to locate any photos of the cabins.

    1. GCamper says:

      I am curious as well Jay. Did you find any pics?

    I stayed in cabin #17 in August 2017. The cabin was brand new and was nice and clean but very basic…no lights, just good beds and a table with 2 chairs. Not sure why they didn’t put bigger windows in the cabins to give more light. I had no problems with the campground managers…they were very friendly when they checked me in, and I didn’t really see them after that.
