After reading previous reviews we decided to walk down Cow Lake Road to make sure our rig would fit. We travel in a Jayco Seneca 36 ft and a toad. It must be said that the area has not received rain recently so the roads were dry however, there are some rather obvious places that would be problematic in wet weather. We stayed in the a... more

Great bird watching lake if it wasn’t for all the local fisherman. We chose the site almost at the end where there are small rapids connecting two parts of the lake. That spot is apparently the place to fish. If we hadn’t asked our tow vehicle semi blocking part of the drive they would have parked all around us. Weekends in June the gr... more

Took a day trip to check it out. Once you leave the gravel road, as mentioned by other reviewers the road is rutted and challenging. I saw a big trailer in there, so clearly it's possible. There are a couple/three spots that will accommodate a trailer and still give you privacy if other campers beat you there. However we noted CLOUDS o... more

“Good place for a day or two, maybe longer.”

Reviewed May 05, 2017

We stopped here on our way east in early May 2017. It wasn't too hard getting here using the coordinates, but the road into the campground is a bit challenging for larger vehicles. Our 38 foot Newmar fit OK, but with the car towed behind us, the first cattle guard as you go onto cow lake road is very narrow and you have to be super car... more

We camped here with a 36' fifth wheel. We were joined by one car camper after we had set up camp the first night and there were also some men fishing in one spot when we arrived. The farm roads into the area are graveled and well maintained. The road inside the area was also graveled but did have some minor ruts and a few puddles which... more

Showed up late. Was worried about disturbing other but there was no one there. Well maintained dirt road access. Easy to find off the highway. Woke up to a gorgeous sunrise over the lake.
