Stayed here in New Years Eve. We were the only ones on the south end of the park. Super quiet, and our site was awesome and right on the lake. Pit toilets nearby. We had electric but no water. I bet this place is packed in the summer.

“Beautiful lakeside camping”

If you can get one of the handful of sites that are directly on the lake, this is a perfect campground. I think my site (9) had the best views in the entire park. I could see the lake in three directions and had massive amounts of privacy, with the exception of the groundhog hanging out in my backyard. There was only one other camper nearby when I was there, but reservation slips indicated that all the lakeview sites were booked over the upcoming weekend.

I'm not sure any of the interior sites are worth visiting unless you're just stopping for the night or plan on spending all your time on the lake. They seemed closer together, with little-to-no privacy and no view to speak of.

Other details: Electric only sites, but there was a really convenient water fill station (with hose attached) at the entrance to the campground and several water spigots scattered throughout. No bathhouse or laundry or anything fancy--just vault toilets, where spiders are born. Dump station at the exit, across from the water fill station. Plenty of dumpsters located throughout the camp.

There's not a ton to do in the surrounding area, but if you're camping here it's probably for lake access. There are several boat ramps and a swimming pool (open after Memorial Day) in the state park and there are swimming beaches in other locations around the lake.
