This was a wonderful little campground right on the lake. It had large sites with water and unmetered 15 or 30 amp electric. There is a mixture of pull-thru and other sites. There is a small playground, boat ramp, the bathrooms were clean, and the showers nice and hot. The attendant was very friendly. We were here in mid-November and we would have stayed longer if the weather had been better. This is our favorite campground so far and we will definitely be back for a visit.

We arrived on a Tuesday in early October and the campground was nearly full. We took site #24 which they call a "buddy" site. Two sites share a common space but each has its own water/electric hookups, table and fire ring. Most of the other sites are down the hill and next to the lake. You can fish from the shore or launch a boat from the ramp. There used to be a pier but it was damaged in a flood. Hopefully it will be rebuilt at some point. You can see it in the Google satellite view. Site #24, our site, is near the top of the hill away from the others and doesn't have direct access to the waters' edge but there is sort of a view of the lake through the trees.
The rate for most of the sites is $15 a night. There's one primitive site for $13 that's also off by itself with no water/electric and no view of the lake. There's a 50% discount for National Park Senior and Access card holders. The buddy site #24 is $21 and we were told the next day that it didn't qualify for the discount even though there was no mention of that at the self-pay station. They were very nice about it and didn't make us pay the extra for the first night but we didn't want to pay $21 so we checked out and moved down the road to Beard's Lake.
If you like privacy, the primitive and the buddy sites are off by themselves. Although, the buddy site would be less than private if you end up with a buddy. To be honest, I wasn't clear if your $21 paid for both sites of just one.
On the plus side, it's a short walk to a bathhouse that has two private bathrooms with hot showers. These showers don't get as much use as the ones down by the lakeside sites, and did I mention they're private? The lakeside showers are inside the men's and women's restrooms.
Down the hill, by the lakeside there are benches where you can watch the sunset over the lake and there's paved parking along the shore. There's a playground but it had some damage and was roped off when we were there. At the top of the hill, near the pay station is a bird-watching deck. Across the road from the campground entrance, is the dump station. We didn't try our phones at the lakeside but up on the hill at our site we had 2 bars of ATT and Verizon - enough to watch Netflix.
The campground and the dump station are open March 1st - October 31st. This is a really nice campground but maybe don't show up without reservations like we did if you have a preference to be near the water. We definitely would have stayed several days if sites had been available and it was easy to see why they weren’t.
