Im going to Rollins pond in sept, I've never been there before,
Looks like they have over 250 sites, does anyone have suggestions on a good water front site?

The bigger sites are in A loop.

Do you want a sandy beach? A wooded point? As little car traffic as possible?

It doesnt have to be a sandy beach, but it would be nice to get to the water,
secluded sites with less trafic would be better.

Then A-Loop is definitely for you. No sandy beaches (it is rather muddy at many of the sites) but the boat and fishing access is pretty decent. It is also a pretty short drive to get to, relatively speaking.

Looks like a nice campground, but all the pictures show the picnic tables on top of the fireplaces, at a 45 degree angle, rendering them impractical for use. I would have to build my own twig-furniture table and excavate a replacement firepit...

Rollins Pond campground closes for the year on Labor Day, but Fish Creek Campground remains open until mid-October.
