Troop 45 camped here in February, and we couldn't have asked for a better site. The COE rangers met us when we arrived, and showed us over to the Old Fort campground. They classify this as "primitive", but there is a water supply and a flush restroom within 150 yards.

Had a huge rainstorm that night, temp fluctuated 45-65 degrees, and there was heavy fog at night.

The rangers really made us feel "at home".

We invited the rangers to eat dinner with us Saturday night, and they accepted. We fed them venison sausage stew with cornbread cooked in a dutch oven, followed by a cobbler, and then at 7 PM they gave the boys a lecture and video presentation on water safety. The rangers also made sure we knew where to find shelter in case we needed storm protection during the night.

I'd recommend the Old Fort campsite to any troop. being the off-season, there was no fee for camping. We did do some LNT cleanup before we left, so the site was left in better condition than we found it.

BIG A PLUS TO THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS ON THIS SITE!
