This is a large flat and open campground in Mount Dissapointment State Forest, suitable for tent based camping.
You can't actually drive into the camping area, so you need to park and walk to your campsite (right next to the car park). This makes it unsuitable for camper trailers or roof top tents.
This is probably one of the quieter campgrounds in the park, maybe because it is a walk in only campground.
Thanks to Peter for the following updates.
The small constrained parking area just off the road has only one level spot - best for car/tent camping.
