“Very nice lake front camping on certain sites, lots of different areas to camp around the lake”
Reviewed Oct 16, 2017
This Park offers a wide variety of campsites spread out around the lake. RV camping with electric is $12.00, add a $1.00 for water. Primitive camping available from $8. The Majority of the RV sites are electric only (most 30amp, some 50amp here and there in certain sections (marked with red stripe on the power box). There is only one section (Shelter #5 area) that has water. IMOP, I would skip this section if you have water in your tanks to get you by during your stays. In this area, there is a building in the way of your lake view, most of the sites sloped downhill towards the lake, they were dirt/grass, so they could be muddy, and they crowded a bunch of sites near each other by the water connections. We originally paid for a site here, but decided to find something else after we saw the sites. There is laundry in the office/store.
We camped in Site #54 which is a small loop between Shelters #4 & #5. This area has pretty flat sites in a gravel parking area with a great unobscructed view of the lake. If you have a toy hauler with a porch, or a Class A with a larger front window, you can have an awesome view of the lake. We are in a 42' Toy Hauler with an HDT Truck (semi) (65' total length) and had no issues in this area with our setup. I did have to park the truck next to the trailer so I didn't block the driveway. We camped in mid Oct during the week when it wasn't very busy either, so I'm sure that could play a role if you visit during a busier time, but we only had 3 of us camping in this area.
Another section with large pull through sites is the loop just north of the dam (sites 33-37) in the Cottonwood grove area, even some 50amp sites here. These are pretty flat gravel sites with plenty of room for large motorhomes or 5th wheels. There are a few handicapped sites with concrete here also. Just beyond this area, there are some very large open grass sites near remote airplane field and by shelter #3 where you would have room for the largest rigs. You have plenty of open room in this area to camp.
The little inlet on the north end of the lake seemed to have a good number of 50amp sites (most on the smaller side), but also seemed to have the largest influx of semi permanent campers even though that's not supposed to be allowed? Maybe they just make themselves at home fairly quickly. In this area, there are some very beautiful sites right on the water, but most of these lend themselves to camper vans, small travel trailers, or maybe small class C campers.
