We originally selected gc 10 as our site. However, it would not fit our 32 ft travel trailer. It took some time, but we were able to switch to gc28. This site was lakefront and fit our camper well. We enjoyed the trail to the dam and walking around the campground when it was not raining. It was close enough to town to get what we needed but remote enough to enjoy the silence and view. We were glad we chose this campground for our first time out and would go again.

Recently upgraded sites to gravel pads with water and electric. Whether you have waterfront or on the other side of the campground road you will have a lovely water view because of the spacing of the sites. All sites have some shade and grass. If you want lots of privacy, then this open campground might not be for you.

Some sites are larger than others and are easier to get into. The campsites face east and run south to north. Rule of thumb - sites whose entrance face north have their curbside to the lake and those that face south have their street side facing the lake. Sites 1,3, and 5 tend to be small and awkward to get into. Better suited for a small RV. Sites after 22 are on a hillside and look out over the lake. There are more trees there too and a few that may have more screening from others.

We were here in mid April and there were only a few people camping so it was very quiet. The campground is off the highway, so little traffic on the county road. Little light pollution- one light at boat ramp and one at the bathhouse. The 1.5 mile rec path has a few lights along it.

At a busy time you might find the lower numbered sites too close to the boat ramp or perhaps entertaining. There are two sites on the hillside that are close to the rec path.

The rec path connects the two camping areas and goes to the dam. It is popular with local folks. There is easy access to the lake for kayaks and canoes, besides the boat ramp. In the day use area there is a playground and a sandy beach. It’s about a half mile or less. About a mile away is a golf course.
This is a resort area and there is lots to do and see.

Hopefully the park will improve the signage and web exposure. If you type in Gibson Cove Campground you will come up empty on Apple Maps, Reserve America and other pages. Or, you will be redirected to Clay County Recreation Area, which this is one of the three campgrounds in the park. Signage to the park is lacking as well as signage within the park. Persevere and you will have a wonderful spot to camp. Read my review at the Clay County Recreation Area on Campendium too for additional info.
