“Nice campground on reservoir ”

Reviewed Jul 18, 2019

Overall Rating

We camped here during a very wet period. High water had flooded out numerous sites. Sites have asphalt pads with mown grass. Ours had electricity but some have full hookups. Toilets were clean and showers were available.

The campground is right on the lake, hence the flooding problem this year.

We spent one night here in Loop 4, Site 86 on a weeknight in mid-October. We were very impressed with the campground. Generously sized campsites, plenty of access to the lake, facilities all appeared to be well maintained and very clean. There are plenty of campsites shaded by a thick deciduous canopy, and there are also plenty r... more

Not much of a view of the... more

Overall Rating

We saw the park had full hookups but as a walk in on a Saturday we were only able to get a site with electricity. We are Golden Pass holders so we only paid $8 for one night. Lots of families camping but the spaces are very spacious. We had a view of the beach area on the lake. Very peaceful. Site was level - didn't need any lev... more
