This campground is located on a 3 acre lake. There is a circle driveway which makes it easy to pull an RV through. We had not problem pulling off of the circle driveway right in front of the lake. The picnic tables, fire pits and grills are off to the side in a different area from where you set up camp. We set up our own table and chairs right outside our RV.  There were 3 other people camping while we were here.  Airey Lake is a popular stop for travelers. Everyone was very friendly. It was very quiet and peaceful. The way the campground is set up, you have a lot of room between sites. We caught 3 bass in the lake within the first hour of fishing! They were great sizes and we were able to enjoy them for dinner.  There were several great hiking trails that ran through this area. We highly recommend this camping area!
