“Quiet and Serene”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2018

Overall Rating

I stayed two nights at Clayton State Park in my minivan. The road out from Clayton is a narrow two-lane which is even more narrow, with no shoulders from the main road to the actual park. The roads within the park are in very bad shape. The Ranger said that most of the damage was due to a very bad storm and limited funds to fix them. Even with the poor road conditions, I was able to navigate to most of the campsites in a Honda Odyssey. The lake is a lovely and serene small lake with gorgeous overlooks. It is quiet and peaceful. There were hardly any campers there when I was there. There are vault toilets near all of the campsites but only one building by the Visitor Center has sinks, toilets, and showers. Those facilities were great, with good hot water and no charge for the showers. They were clean and very well-kept. The Dinosaur tracks have a good trail to them that is well-maintained. It is 1/4 mile walk but it is an easy walk and worth the time and effort.

Very nice park 12 mi north of Clayton. No dump station on site but in town at Love's truck stop you can dump for $5. Minimal cell service on top of dam.
