The campground is full of permanent campers, so it is very large and full of people. The campsites are nothing to brag about, but the stalls are nice and large and safe. The main draw to this campground is JoJo. Every morning, she will go over the map with you, while drawing her own map to the destination of your choice. She will tell you the sites to see and what to look for. This was a wonderful help and we saw things that we may have not seen because of her. She also lets you know the trails to avoid, so listen to her advice. High Knob is centrally located to many of the 'must see' sites. The trails should be on everyone's bucket list. Huge rock formations, caves, beautiful water crossings. Trails can be challenging in places and muddy due to erosion. Make sure that you have new shoes on because the large rocks and mud can pull off shoes quickly.
