Beautiful Campground!
Spacious spots, clean bathrooms, amazing bike trail as well! And cheap! ONLY downside is that our Verizon coverage was horrible in Site 87…..one to two bars only.

Nice park. We are on site 30. Full hookups but we used 3 boards each side to get level. Very low in the front. Park was easy to find. Roads in are fine. Paved pads. Starlink works. Self contained so I don’t know about the rest rooms. Would be 5 stars but so unlevel.

Quiet And Clean
Great bathrooms and clean! Will definitely be back and get a site closer to the water to kayak.. also a plus was 20 miles of bike trails around the area of the lake !

Amazing Campground
This is probably my favorite campground. It’s quiet, not really any partiers, well maintained and huge sites. I have yet to find a cramped site. It’s run by the Army Corp of Engineers. Veterans and seniors get half off the normal price of $24/day for full hookup.

Overnight Stop On the Way Back Home
Beautiful!!! Will definitely come back here. We saw about 2 dozen deer, skunk and raccoons. Nicely wooded and spaced out sites. Lots of bike trails.
