“Washed out for anything but a truck or high clearance unless you park on the road”
Reviewed Nov 02, 2016
I pulled onto the rock/sand road after dark and after about 100' in from turning off the paved road it was severely washed out to make it impassible in my 23' RV. Along the dirt road there was high grass everywhere and tracks where ATVs had been racing over part of the roads, these were smooth showing a lot of wear but 3' high in some spots. I couldn't get past the first intersection to even make it down to the river to check out the campsites. I did sleep here though and outside of some teenagers making some kind of rendezvous here, it was OK along the road. This morning I went for a walk and apparently the park doesn't exist, as the road to the lake was gated off.
*** UPDATE: **** I read other reviews of this park and apparently my Garmin sent me down a back country road near the south end of the lake instead of the park, because I could see the lake a few hundred feet in the distance but there was a gate keeping people out. So what I think happened is that if you go by these GPS coordinates, you get sent west on 281 off 87 and then told to take an immediate left down a sand/gravel road instead of continuing on a bit, heading further northwest on 281 to access the north west corner of the lake which must have the actual campground. Oh well, I got a free night's stay and a free undercarriage sanding ;-)
Please submit if anyone comes up with the real coordinates of the park because the area referenced with this GPS is a dust/sand/bowl, potential-mud-bog, ATV racing pit.
