    We love this place. It's beautiful. The water is clean and the entire area is so well kept. Camping is quiet. Camp Charlton is our quick getaway spot all throughout the hot summer months.

    Charlton campground is located on what was my Granfathers homestead. The camp on the hill was their peach orchard.All my aunts, uncles and dad (18 children in all) learned to swim there in the creek.
