Jackrabbit Mountain campground

Jackrabbit campground is comprised of three loops A,B, and C.The whole campground is lightly wooded with manicured lawns throughout. Some sites a overlook Chatuge Lake and are mostly located in the A and B section, section C is heaver wooded but allows for more privacy and you can still access the lake but the views are not as breathtaking. The topography of the campground is pleasantly varied making the interior roads a neat "playground" for bikes and roller blades.The Amphitheater is currently used only for Sunday services.
