Sites are spread apart and mostly wooded. All back-in sites with a side space for your toad/truck. Mostly flat but we did have a challenge getting level . Quiet but less than a mile from the Interstate. Public golf course adjacent as part of the recreation area.

They have a great dump site that has better access I have seen. Bathhouses are clean and well kept. Boat ramp available and good fishing in Rend Lake.

When you reserve on check the facilities for your site. Some are electric only, some water & electric , some FHU.

My cost reflects Senior discount 50% with America the Beautiful
