    Hopewell Lake is a beautiful, well-located Campground. Be advised several sites offer little-to-no shade/shelter from the elements. Something else to be very aware of: rules are not enforced. Over Labor Day weekend, in a single campsite we counted six (plus) vehicles and well over the maximum number of people. Also tolerated are lots of noise (one RV'er ran an emergency-purpose -- read: EXTRA LOUD -- generator during "quiet hours" on a daily basis), campsite "hopping," and pets galore. Unfortunately there is no separation between RV and tent sites, so if you're tent campers like us, be prepared to deal with rule-breakers who do so with no consequences. Otherwise, a nice place. Recommendations: 1) Pick a site nearer the front (1-15), and 2) Go when fewer campers are there. Follow these guidelines, and you're sure to enjoy yourself.
