Murphys Meadow New
Wanted some peace and quiet and this place fits the bill for sure, usually the area has 1 to 2 campers at the most except for the entire month of Oct which is deer season and you can forget about getting a spot.... arrived on a thursday and used the truck gate w/no issues, signage is clear and visible all throughout the base, we first went down to the lakeside spots but found out quickly that all those spots have no sewer hook-up only water/elec... so we moved up top to the dozen spots w/full hook-up, all are back in sites with concrete and 99% level... most have large trees for shade, no wi-fi or cable or free tv stations(that we could pick-up) so a dish is recommended... shopette is only open m-f 10-5 otherwise you have to head into town to shop, no fuel on post but there is a station right outside the gate, there is a laundry room and a separate shower/restroom bldg, they have a mwr that rents rv's/boats/trailers/misc but again is only open m-f, when you first pull in there is a post that has the rate sign and envelope for you to take and pay later, other than that you really do not see anyone which is great!! grass is clean and play area for kids is nice, there is a mini catch/release fish pond for the kids, police do patrol frequently and will answer any questions about the area... my only gripes are that the swimming pool was not open nor maintained, there are no pet trash areas nor any dumpster in the camp area, other than that this is an awesome quiet very easy to get to and get around place, the weekends are nice because you can bike/run/walk around and not worry about traffic and just enjoy the trails/animals. will definitely be back!!
