Campground Review

 

This 1,533 acre park bills itself as a water sportsman’s paradise, and I can easily see why.  And even though I’m no water sportsman, I still enjoyed all the views of the beautiful lake during the lovely fall weather we had during my visit in early November, 2014.

Pickwick - dock

This is the boat launch and I just enjoyed the view of this little island from here.

Pickwick - picnic

There are lots of opportunities for great views and having a lakeside picnic.

Picwick - beach

The swimming beach was deserted since the weather, although sunny, was still way too chilly for wading, but I’ve heard this is a very popular place during the summertime.  There’s a volleyball court across the road from here.

Pickwick - Marina

Fishing is still going on, though, and this lady seemed happy with her catch as I was taking a picture at the Marina.

Pickwick - cemetery

There is a nature trail around the campground and also opportunities to walk alongside the lake.  Since I’ve always been fascinated by old historic cemeteries, I visited the Pickwick White Sulphur Cemetery that has some burials here from the 1800s.

Pickwick - restaurant

After all that walking around, I treated myself to Sunday brunch at The Captain’s Galley Restaurant located in the Inn and left quite full and satisfied.  The food was fresh, hot, homemade and very tasty – and the views were great, too.

Cabins – 10 standard cabins with two bedrooms/one bathroom.

Golf Course – A 9 trail course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Joe Lee

Marina – Overnight docking available for boats up to 80′ in length.

Activities – Swimming, fishing, hiking
