Three miles from I-40 but the crickets block any traffic noise. There are several sections to this campground when combined with the McDowell Campground. Tables and firepits without numbers are probably picnic sites. I'm not sure if I was in the McDowell or McClellan park. Only one other camper late September. There was no water in the lake.

New to Rving
Nice area, with lots of large old elm and cootonwood trees. Our site was a level gravel site with water and electric. There were only a few campers in the area we stayed at, which is on the eastern side of the lake, next to the atv campgrounds. Fir a national site, I felt it was neglected somewhat. This could really be a nice place with mire tlc from the government. We were in a 22 foot travel trailer. We will stay here again.

Remoteness is the key when coming out to this lake, at times you can be the only one out here. The lake is popular with ATV riders so during the day you will have some noise from them. Gravel campsites are nice but not completely level. Bathhouse/shower house is clean and located close to the rv area. Most sites are buck ups with a few pull throughs. Well worth the stay if you need a place to go while traveling on I-40.

Cheap And Quite
Gravel sites. Not level! We had to move from our first site because it was so unlevel that our Anderson Levellers couldn't make our camper even close to being level.
Some sites are back in and some are pull throughs. Some have electric and water and others don't. You have to look around to see which ones fit your needs.
Beware during the day. This campground adjoins ATV trails that are quite popular. Noise during the day might be an issue. Wasn't for us as we stayed only one night.
One other item you might consider. This is a very remote campground. No TV stations from the air and Verizon was hit and miss. Marginal at best.
We were the only ones at the campground. We had someone drive slowly past our site at 11:30 at night. They were gone before we could get to a window to see what was going on. If remoteness bothers you might want to pass on this one.
