“Quiet, large shaded camping on the lake.”

Reviewed Nov 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for two nights, while on our way to Kentucky, our final destination. Typical for many state parks, no one was at the main gate, so we had to find the main office by following the signs. The staff is very laid back, nice, helpful and led us to our spot. If you are driving/towing a large rig, be aware that the roads are narrow. To access our spot, I had to drive against the one way traffic to back into our spot. This was not a problem since it was the middle of the week- kids in school- there were only four other campers in the Yocona Ridge Campground. We enjoyed the solitude, quiet time in this park. Wildlife- geese, squirrels, deer were everywhere.
Our spot was on the lake and shaded. There are many trees to hang a hammock. One item to note for any fisherman, check the lake levels. At the time of our trip in mid-October, the lake was drawn down to very low levels.
We would definitely return to this campground for an extended stay. All of the sites are shaded and spread out, offering privacy, due to the distance between sites.
Water, sewer, 50 amp service is available at our site. The site is level asphalt.
