Lake Delancy East Campground

IMG_8785

    We liked this national forest campground so much that extended our planned stay by a day and would have stayed longer but the short hours of daylight and clouds that rolled in made our solar panels pretty useless. The fact that we parked under the trees didn’t help either. :-D  The sites are all fairly large and the campground appears to get lightly used. The sites under the trees are level. The sites in the grass are not as level but have a partial view of the lake. Amenities include tables, fire rings, trash cans, hand pumped water, and vault toilets.

  The campground is about 3.5 miles west from Route 19 on a wide, maintained but washboard dirt road. It’s very dark and quiet at night. Another campground, Lake Delancy West, is adjacent to Lake Delancy East and is designed for OHV users. There were only a few riders during our stay and they rode on trails away from the campgrounds but weekends may be noisy.

   None of the sites are designated as accessible but many are usable. The sites in the grass have concrete tables without overhangs but there is at least one wooden one with an extended top. The sites under the trees have wooden tables with short overhangs. The ground at the sites under the trees is hard packed and pushing around is not difficult. The toilets are listed as accessible but I did not check them out.

  The dirt road to the campground and the campsites are suitable for any RV.   Campground   29.43062, -81.78623

    1. Sorry we missed you guys! I have a hard time keeping track of the location of all the great people we've met at the RTR gatherings.

      Have a good trip west and please post about the RTR. We're really going to miss being there this year!
