If you are just passing through and need a place to stay for a night or a week, this is a great spot. It has all the usual amenities, i.e. showers, toilets, fresh water, & dump station. Plus it has a huge shore line open to primitive camping. That's not what I was going for, so my experience was different. We ended up changing ... more

“Not a great park for class A 35’”

Reviewed Jun 03, 2019

Overall Rating

The park and lake are beautiful but we could not find a site level enough to make it work for us. We have a 35’ class A with a toad and had to remove the toad just to navigate the park. It’s very tight. With the sites being so unlevel, we ended up leaving and forfeiting our payment for two days. Definitely a park for smaller rigs - van... more

At the entrance we were greeted by a park ranger asking the length of stay… he went over and got us a map & envelope for fees. Primitive was $8, but we actually paid $10 as we decided to stay in a level site vs primitive on the beach. Very quiet, little narrow on the roads in the park, but overall would highly recommend this park and t... more

“No entrance to your campsite after 5pm! ”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2019

Overall Rating

This state park doesn’t allow after hours access to your campsite after 9pm in the summer and 5pm in the winter! They don’t advertise this on their website, but it is in the confirmation email- after you’ve already paid. Unfortunately, we didn’t notice this rule in our email. After driving for 10 hours in bad weather, we arrived af... more

I had high hopes for this park, sadly this is not a happy camper. After driving 6 hours we arrived after the visitors center had closed, proceeded to the spot we had reserved 6 weeks prior, only to find a fifth wheel set up in our site. I walked to the camp hosts camper to ask what to do and he said he wasn’t the camp host, although t... more

My stay here is where my overall trip plans fell apart so I was not in a good head space, still I had a good experience here with the park, the facilities and the amazing location. I got there right as everyone was leaving from a holiday weekend so it was packed then almost vacant the next day. The road I took in from I40 exit 63 had s... more

“Just okay campground ”

Reviewed Jun 15, 2017

I wasn't impressed with this place or possibly my expectations were too high. The lake was pretty, the campground open. I thought the campground was full however we found that most of the sites are not reservable and in turn ended up with a less than desirable spot. There was no clear place to swim, at least for younger kids, alt... more

Tent camped here for 2 nights. The second night was quite windy since my campsite was near the cliff overlooking the lake. Friday night was quiet and peaceful; Saturday night not so due to people on the other side of the lake running ATV's for several hours so if you want peace and quiet better to stay during the week as there is a lo... more

When we arrived late at night we picked an electric site (#6). The site only had electric hook-up. There is a drinking water fill station and a seperate dump station. The electric site was $14. That night the sky was clear and we could easily see the Milky Way. The temperature dropped down in the low 30's. The following morning, we... more
