This campground was ok. The price was actually $14 per night, not $8. The sites were nice, but we ended up with some noisy camper neighbors. Reminds me why I prefer backcountry camping.
The campground was okay. The best sites are the ones located at the beginning of the loop on the outside. We were in site 41, which was a walk up - we had to walk up a little incline to get to our site, but nothing onerous. The campground was pretty wooded, although we were a bit close to the site that we backed up on.
If you are coming from the direction of Spruce Knob Mountain, the road is unpaved for the last 10 miles. The road was in acceptable condition for our compact car.
The biggest issues was that we thought there would be water at the campground, but there were signs on all the taps saying, "Water has not been tested. Don't drink." Luckily we brought a filter as the nearest store is 15 miles (and about 40 minutes) away. Apparently, the camp host drinks the water with no problems.
I would stay here again - it was convenient to get to a number of hikes in the Mon from here.
