“Family-friendly and laid back atmosphere”

We arrived at sunset on a Friday night and snatched a first-come first-serve site by the water (where you can stay until 3 pm the next day). It was very quiet and there were no parties or loud groups even on a Friday night. The trail surrounding the lake was closed unfortunately. The showers are pretty old and dirty, but at $16 with el... more

“on the water”

Overall Rating

Good overnight close to I80. Sure within 15 feet of water. Boat ramp next to site. Could be very crowded at times. Boating, fishing popular. No state park entry fee.

This is one of the most scenic parks but this past weekend the postings were incorrect and I had to move sites and the one vehicle per campsite was not enforced. There were so many cars you could hardly see the trailers that were on campsite. Just an unsafe environment for animals, kids, n car traffic. Was disappointed in this trip there.

“Pleasant lakeside camping”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2018

Overall Rating

We stopped here on our way to Colorado and we're pleasantly surprised by the beauty and amenities. We had reserved site 42, which was right on the water and had a bit of shade. There was a small dock at the site as well, which we used to launch our kayak. Pleasant paddling lake with lots of fish. We were there during the week, so no... more

“NIce lakeside camping”

Reviewed May 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here a couple of nights 2nd week of May during the week. Got a spot right on the lake, nice. The signs showing the way to the sites could use a little work. My site #33 was right across from one numbered in the 50s; Go figger! Hiking trails are few from what I could determine but I did manage a 4 mile out & back hike though par... more

“Ok state park with water access.”

We stayed here while traveling to CO if was a short distance off of the I 80, but our GPS took us down gravel roads when coming in from the east. When we left we went west and the roads were all paved to the I 80. We could not hear the highway at all, but it was hot so we had our camper air conditioner running. There are many sit... more
