This campground was so peaceful. Much larger than we had anticipated. We’re able to get in on a Monday evening with no reservations. We understand this is not the case on weekends. Just here overnight so didn’t get to experience the lake. Host got us all checked in, very helpful and suggested a good site for us. We would stay here again.

Stopped in for just one night on our way South. What a great spot, we will have to come back and spend more time. The park is surrounded by wetlands and prairie with loads of wildlife- within a few minutes we saw deer, rabbit, snakes, birds, even a group of Turkey Vultures along the shore of the lake. Being a Monday, even though it is still August, there is hardly anyone here, they do have events here and it is a big area for hunting, so I imagine they get very busy on weekends and while schools are out during the summer. Vault toilets, but we didn't use either those or the shower rooms. They have some full hookup sites for $25, but just for the night, we opted for a large site down close to the water with only electric. Not a sole in our area at all, we had the place to ourselves. Driving through the park, it appears that all the sites are large and there is lots of room between campers. The camp host is very nice and helpful. We also stopped down at the beach area to grab dinner at Boondocks, a little grill with inside and outside seating near the boat ramp. Lovely place in general, especially for the price. Lots of bike/walking/running trails wind through the area, and easy access for water sports, we saw several pontoon boats the evening we were there. It is tucked out of the way, not right on the interstate, but both google maps and excellent signage on the roads got us there very easily.
