“Wooded, windy and quiet”

Reviewed May 28, 2019

Overall Rating

Camped 5/19/19 (Sun), electric site. Park has different areas, so turn left (coming from the south) off Hwy 107 when you see the campground legend on the sign. No state park entrance fee was charged. There were two sets of hosts (who took payment) for the 3 campground loops. We didn't have a reservation and on a Sunday night, it was mostly empty. Last loop is the largest and had slightly better partial views of the lake through the trees. There are also cabins in this loop, a showerhouse & vault toilet. The campground is wooded, on a bluff above the lake; sites facing the lake were real windy (at least when we were there). It is densely wooded, and probably because of so much rain, it was somewhat unkept (unmowed areas, weedy). A lot of sites were closed due to electrical issues.

Non-electric, electric & premium electric (50 amp) are offered. We had no cell service, but got 2 bars by the campground's amphitheater. Water spigots are in various spots. The middle loop had a clean vault toilet with hand sanitizer and auto-lights - inside & out - that came on when you approached in the dark. The first loop was smaller and had close access to the main road showerhouse that even had a laundry facility. There's a boat ramp, boat parking and a fish cleaning station at the end of the campground.

Sites are large with gravel pads and are back-in. There is a lantern/trash hook, picnic table & fire ring with grill top. Some sites have some shrubbery for privacy, most don't. Most seemed level, others were slanted. There is poison ivy about. Handicapped sites were nice - they had cement pads with connecting pad that the picnic table sat on. Showerhouses were clean, with hand soap dispensers. No trash bins around, just a dumpster & aluminum can recycling at the front, across from the dump station. There is a doggy poop bag dispenser at the showerhouse on the main road by the first loop.

The campground was very quiet, except for the birds singing (we were in the middle loop which had only 2 other campers). The last loop had the most campers, but also very quiet. Even though it was wooded, there were sites that were fairly open above, allowing sunshine in. We didn't have a problem with bugs and mosquitoes when we were there.

“Woodsy camping”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Very quiet state park campground in the woods. Not at all busy during week. Great hosts who keep Campground very nice. Showers were old, seemed clean but moldy smelling. Sites not level, so harder for bigger rigs. We choose higher priced 50 amp site to be closer to lake, although limited view/access. Had many 30 amp site, only electric on sites. In park Mark Twain things interesting. Fine to stay over when traveling through. Would stay again if needed to be in the area.
