    Top Notch

    If your looking for basic primitive cabins (no bathroom, no water, single room) then these work great for late season fishing trips. Staff is awesome, location is perfect!

    nice camp dog feces every where.

    nice camp ground clean bathrooms nice elect at sights.(no generators running) quiet. It was disappointing of all dog feces in camp sights and on the beaches and people keeping dogs of leaches seems enforcement and fines need to be started. We have a dog and clean up after him. We have traveled the country and see more and more parks off limits to dog due to there owners. More and more places are closed so children can play on a beach sand and not get dog feces all over them.

    Great end of summer stay

    We decided that we were not finished camping for the season even tho the weather had turned cool. Into the 30's at night. The campground was not very busy but there were a few other campers here and there. It was a nice quiet stay. The sites are nice and large. The gravel pads are fairly level so we don't have to work too hard to level the camper. The only down side to camping here is the sand burs and the goat heads. and I know there is nothing that can be done about those, just be watchful. It was a great 2 night stay!! I love the lake and the beautiful sunsets we see almost every visit!!!

    A Wonderful Stay

    Everything was very clean and well managed. The lady at the park placed us in a better camping spot for my disabled husband than what we had reserved online. Kuddos to her for the great service. We were very impressed with this park. We stayed a week and enjoyed it so much.
