We stayed at loop 1 site 1. The loops aren't marked and we only found it by running into a camp host by chance. The showers are locked. The toilets are open and clean. There's plenty of standing dead wood around for fire wood. No need to pay for it. I collected enough for two nights in about an hour. The lake is beautiful. They were having water issues when we arrived and we were told the water was not potable but a few hours later the issue was fixed. The sites are spacious and I actually have two fire rings in my site. The electrical pedestal is in a weird spot way to the left side. Maybe this site was 2 sites that they merged...?

Campground closed still. Faucets don’t work. Only marina and picnic areas open.
Roads on this apps maps show going beyond second campground. It’s gated, closed and private property. Most close by areas for potential camping say no camping. One campground along finger of lake coming in was open but crowded, probably because regular camps are closed.

This is a busy but large and well-maintained campground. There are a number of different campgrounds contained within the Bolar Mountain Campground complex, but only one was open when I car-camped there at the end of September. Still, there were plenty of spots available, and I found an amazing one that was right on the lake - spot #27! Pit toilets were right nearby, showers were up the hill. There was a campground attendant who was very helpful with payment and also sold firewood. The campground is certainly popular so there was a decent amount of music playing/generators running through the afternoon/early evening, but everyone seems to respect quiet hours, which are from 10p-6a. This campground wasn't where I had planned to stay, but I'm very glad I did! Lots of folks dropping their kayaks or paddleboards in, or boating around. Lake was also the perfect temperature for one last swim. Very much enjoyed my stay!
