Super friendly staff. It is first come first serve, so we called to see if there were any spots left. They were full, but told us to come on in anyways and they would find us a spot, which they did. Easy to find and a pleasant drive past fields of cattle. The view of the lake and cypress trees was just amazing. In the evening, it was a mostly dark sky and we loved star gazing. The bathrooms and showers were clean. They did have a community fire pit and a nice grill/smoker combo which could be used.
This is the only boat ramp on the lake which is surrounded by a huge conservation area. The bait and tackle shop was very well stocked. They even had some things to eat and drink. There are boat rentals, fishing/nature guides, and air boat rides available.
There are no hookups and no generators were allowed between 9 pm to 6 am (which some people didn't follow). There are no gates, so we were woken by people arriving in the middle of the night and by boaters using the boat ramp before sunrise. Of course, be prepared for mosquitoes. There are many alligators known to be in the area, so no swimming is allowed. You could hear them grunting all day and night (not overwhelming), but we never saw any.
Overall, great stay and would go back. The lake is huge and mostly untouched. Next time we would love to rent a boat (pontoon $75 per hour) for an early morning nature adventure. I heard people coming back from their attempts at fishing exclaiming they wished they would have hired the guide.
