“Private and beautiful with easy access for big rigs!”

Reviewed Sep 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Other than WalMart overnights, we have never boondocked before. We found this spot and decided to give it a try. We pulled in on a Sunday evening and found a spot under some trees with a view of the water. Super easy to get a big rig here. We are in a 41.5 Ft fiver toyhauler. There are toilets if you need them but they are primitiv... more

“Nice place, need pass/license/permit.”

Reviewed Aug 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Arrived from out of state at dusk. Signs said state pass, hunting or fishing license, or permit required. No self registration but phone number provided for permit. Called - they were unaware Prewitt even existed. 13 minutes later they gave me another phone number - local office. Recorded message said office closed, hoped to open this ... more

“Second time visit!!!”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2018

Overall Rating

We really love it here! We were able to visit again (last time we came was October 2016). This time we brought our friends from Hebards Travels and it made our trip that much better! We had a phenomenal time watching the sunsets from the beach, kayaking, swimming and relaxing! We work from the road and our internet with Viaero a... more

“Beach Boondocking at its finest!”

Reviewed Jul 18, 2018

Overall Rating

1st Class RV adventures shared this spot with us and it quickly became one of our favorites as well. Beach: soft sand, some roots from trees but we have been barefoot, pretty much since we arrived. Water: we’re here in July and it is shallow, 75 degrees, comfortable, perfect for kayaking, carp and wall eye are very prominate. We... more

“Beautiful boondocking area!”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first real boondocking experience when we first began full time RVing! We only lasted 4 Days because we ran out of water (total newbies). We travel in a 44 foot fifth wheel and had no trouble finding a spot right by the water! The Sterling rest area is not too far for dumping and water and it’s free. We had my broth... more

“Great”

Reviewed Jun 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Wish we could have stayed longer. We’ll be back! Lots of room for any size rig. We are in a 25’ Coachmen Galleria but many othe much larger RV and trailers. Many large flicks of white pelicans.

Nice dispersed camping along the reservoir. Great for swimming. Lots of locals. Unfortunately got pushed out due to bad weather but wish we could have stayed because it was awesome.
