“Stayed one night at the start of the stip, then two more at the end...”
|Site Number:||50, then 48|
This is a Corps of Engineers, so it's more basic for amenities than some like. But as long as you don't need 50A service, this is a pretty awesome park. It's spread out along the shore of Wilson Lake on the NW side. There's a mix of pull-thru and back-in sites. Some are well shaded and some are getting full sun. So pick what you need for the time of the year.
Except for the main road, it's mostly gravel for the pads and smaller roads. Dust could be a problem. Sites aren't right on top of each other, but you are close to your neighbors. The layout was pretty good and we had no trouble getting setup.
As mentioned in the title, we used this place as stopping point during a long trip. We enjoyed it so much that first night that we stopped for two nights towards the end of the trip. It's probably best to have a reservation, especially on weekends. We risked it and got sites. Seems to be a very popular park with the locals.
The park is quite large, so you can enjoy some bike riding if the urge hits. You can swim along the shoreline, but erosion control measures make it a bit of work. There's a skinny boat ramp with a difficult approach, but it didn't seem to slow down the boaters Star gazing was fabulous. As was watching the storms roll through one night. Good fire pits/grills and fairly new picnic tables. Bath house was clean and the low-flow showers were warm enough (at least for Summer time). Easy approach on the dump station. 4 major camping loops with good separation. Pretty cool overlook at the top of the hill.
The park is staffed by two guys. Wilson was the gate guy and super friendly. He's one of the typical transient park hosts who heads south in the winter. And he's one of the reasons we made the 2nd stop.
Brian C would stay here again
