“Where was the boondocking?”

Reviewed Oct 03, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped here 9/27 & 28, 2018.

Prior reviews indicate that it is possible to boondock here for $8/night, but if there were places for a big rigs to park for that price, we sure didn't see them. All the camping spots we found, other than ones accessible only by foot, had electric and cost $20/night. We saw no park employees at all, no one checked payment or tags. We took the end space, #23, which was easy enough to pull into and paralleled the water for nice views. There was only one other camper in our section the first day, but all the spaces there were full when we left. All were quiet.

The weather did not play nice with us while we were there, so we were glad to have electric hookup. It was too chilly and windy for me to get on the lake with my kayak, but that would certainly have been something to do here. There were a lot of birds including Belted Kingfisher, Great Blue Herons, and American White Pelicans. There is plenty of walking in the park and along the shoreline, restrooms in a couple locations, and a playground in the upper campground. There is a dump station and potable water there, as well.

This area parallels the highway, so it is not a peaceful place (unless the weather keeps you indoors where you can't hear it!) We would stay here again if we ever had to pass through the area, though, hopefully with better weather to get out on the water.

“Lots of boondocking available”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived at Enders Reservoir State Recreation Area on a Saturday in June, and there were LOTS of folks there taking advantage of the pretty reservoir and inexpensive boondocking. The campground has about 30 electric-only sites (all back-in as far as I could tell). Electric-only fee is $20 plus park entry fee of $8/day. Boondocking pays only $8/day. The area on the south side of the reservoir appeared to be more primitive and probably better for tents and/or small rigs, but north side of the reservoir had good roads and easy access - big rig friendly. Dump station, water, electric sites are on the north side of the reservoir.
