“Quiet and Shady”

Overall Rating

This park is very comfortable if you just want to relax, or if you are a fisherman with a boat. The campsites for RVs are lovely and have a nice sized space between them, They are all built into circular drives and easy to turn and backup into the spaces. Each has a fire-pit with moveable grill, a picnic table and plenty of shade. We didn't even put our awning out.

If you have a group gathering there are plenty of larger picnic area for that and there is a great playground for children.

What I didn't like was that there is no sandy beach or swimming area. The lake is right there so I see no excuse for the state not making that available. There is a nice boat ramp if you have a boat and trailer, but I didn't feel comfortable putting my kayak into the water with rocks and rubbish along the shoreline.

Other than the lake's edge the park is super clean and truly lovely. Very well maintained.

We were assigned site number 94 at the gate before the camping area. We always would rather do a drive through and scout out the "best" site, especially at a park we have never been to.

Sites 61-126 are all dry camping sites with a picnic table and fire ring. Most sites were fairly level and could accommodate most larger rigs. Most of these sites were shady except 87-90, 93, 94 (our site, the only pull thru), 96, 98-101. All restrooms for the dry camping area were vault toilets, clean and non smelly.

Had we done a drive through, we would have selected a site in the RV area, sites 1-60, with full hookups. Lots of lush green grass, lots of shade, flush toilets and showers (showers tokens can only be gotten at the main gate). You will be able to see your neighbors, but we would have enjoyed the green and shade.

The park has a huge picnic area, again with lush green grass and lots of shade, some areas with shelters. There are rustic cabins to rent with AC, a group area, boat launch, fish cleaning station, playground area, dump station, recycling, one larger trash compactor was located centrally, and a trailhead that we did not have time to check out. We were surprised there was not a swimming or beach area.
