Bullards is great, was there last month. I checked out the boat in campgrounds and it looked like a hike I wouldn't want to take in 100 degree weather carring all my stuff - and that was 6 weeks ago! Couldn't imagine it now - the shores are very steep. We camped in Dark Day campground at the triple sight and it was great. Loved it! Nice and shady and lots of places to set up tents - we had 9 tents and there was room for more! It was also very nice being near the ramp but like they said above, its probably closed now.
We did have a bad "incidnet" at Emerald Cove. We were coming in to fuel up and hit bottom. There was an outcropping about 1 foot under water that was completely unmarked about 100 feet off shore within the 5 mile marking between the houseboats and dam and in direct line to the marina. I expect marina's to be clearly marked unlike outside of the marina where you never know what's below you. When we spoke with the Owner (yes Owner) we did get the answer we thought but not the attitude we expected. She was horribly rude, non-responsive, said there was nothing she could do about it. I expected them to not take responsibility, we never even implied we wanted them to, however I did think they would want to protect their customer's property in the future, but that was not the case. She new exactly where we were talking about but said she would not mark it. How hard is it to ancor a bouy? It was totally unbelievable. It was right by all the houseboats too where they pay big money to store their boats. Over the 3 days we were there, we saved 2 other boats from hitting the same spot where we hit. Thankfully, we had no damage as we were barely moving along.
Anyway, moral of the story, have fun but be safe and watch out for rocks, low areas and trees... and spit on the owners counter for us (jk). Enjoy, its beautiful up there!
