1 Night Stay
We stayed here Christmas night 2022 just passing through with a reservation. They gave no indication on the confirmation that there was a campground gate that required a code. No one was there to check us in at all. We called the number at the check in station and the manager was a very nice man who seemed confused that we didn't have a code at all. I looked over the confirmation several times. He was able to give us a code and told us to check in at 8 am which we couldnt do since we had to be on the road by 7. Very nice park with nice sites and bathrooms. Views of the lake were pretty as the sun came up. They just need to revise their checkin procedure for late arrivals. In MO they have virtual checkin and alert you if a code is needed.

Second time staying here. As of 5/24/2021 the pull throughs are still under renovation. Other misc. projects are under way. Still a nice place to stay. Might want to check on construction progress.

The pull through sites are not for class A or large trailers/fifth wheels. Most are steep, sharp turn exits are difficult or impossible. Don’t drive around this park with a camper unless you are experienced at very narrow roads. If you run off , there are deep wash outs that will ruin you camper. The turns have trees that make turns with a large vehicle impossible.

38 class A. One star because it’s not for class A’s. It’s a nice campground BUT not big rig friendly. Glad we checked it out with our jeep first. 40ft pull through sites are not what they seem. They are on a hill with a short flat area on top. You have to go down hill and make a sharp right turn into a one lane wide road with a deep drop off on the other side to leave. We didn’t see any spots that would work other than the camp host site. This campground has hills, curves and sharp turns.

Natural park, Sites And Roads Need Maint
(Pulling 30’ foot Fifth Wheel.)
2nd time staying here. Roads (asphalt) are very narrow, with sharp turns, trees and washed out edges. If/ when you drop off road you will bottom out axles on asphalt, scrapping side walls of tires. Who ever designed campground roads never pulled a travel trailer before.
Please widen roads or at least fill eroded road edges in with gravel.
You will drag your trailer bumper getting into pull-thru site #2.
Lake is gorgeous, tree lined with all water activities. Camp sites are wooded. Very secluded. Can here I-75 and an occasional train off in the distance.

This is a great campground. Secure with locked gate but easy to navigate with a park office AND several separate attentive park hosts. On the water with great inlets for kayaking. Beautiful lake, and lots of trails. Bathrooms are eh. Not terrible but nothing great. Stayed both tent camping and 17ft travel trailer

Nice Park, But Busy On The Weekend
It’s a really nice park, but I made the mistake of going on a weekend and it was pretty crowded. There are trails that connect the campground to all the other trails, which is nice. I think you’re allowed to bike on the trails. Some spots are definitely better than others, so get there early to get a good spot.

Large sites, $40 a night. Stayed last minute for one night. No sewer, but nice. Would stay again.

You are on an island in a man made lake. Lots of hiking boating and fishing in the lake around you. Sites are gravel wooded and roomy. Our site was up high overlooking the lake, to where you could go down and go swimming right there. Also jump into the car and go over to the Homestead site or the camp store. (Stayed July 2015)

This is a nice, clean, huge park with a gated campground. Lots of hiking and a nice beach on the lake
