Overall Rating

Beard's Lake has 5 water and electric sites with 20/30/50 amp connections and 3 dry sites next to the the lake with no hookups. All have a table and fire ring. The bathrooms were very clean and had flush toilets but the door locks didn't work. There's a boat ramp, three docks, a short nature walk and a kids playground. It's close to the road so there is traffic noise, especially the occasional logging trucks but it's not constant and it's still pretty peaceful. The posted rate is $13 whether you have electric and water or a site without but you get a 50% discount for the National Park Senior or Access Pass. The self-pay station is across the lake from the campsites by the boat launch. The sites are non-reservable. We were there in early October and there was only one other camper. The main activity here is fishing and it looked like a good spot for it so I assume it's a busier park in the warmer months. The sites are paved and all looked pretty level. We took a primitive site to be next to the lake and didn't need to level. There's at least partial shade at each site except two of the lakeside dry sites. The sites are suitable for any size RV and the roads are paved. ATT and Verizon had 1-2 bars and was enough to make calls and get on the internet. I didn't see public water other than at the campsite hook-ups. There were signs about alligators and we heard stories but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) we didn't see any.

There's no wastewater dump here but there is one just outside Beard's Bluff Campground less than 2 miles to the East. There are actually 4 campgrounds here within 3 or 4 miles of each other. Beard's Bluff Campground is nice but was full, River Run East Campground, River Run West Campground which was closed when we were there, and Millwood State Park.

This was a nice find and hard to beat the price for hookups. The campground is open March 1st - October 31st.
