Overall Rating

Park is still recovering from the flood but overall it's a great place to day trip or weekend camp. Trails allow for hike, dogs on leash, mountain bikes and horses. There's a Sandy Beach for swimming or fishing from shore. Primitive camping (but no dump station) so you need to be fully self contained if you bring your RV. Porta John's were clean and recently serviced. Camp sites were large and a couple had small corrals for the horses. You'll likely see some wildlife. We saw deer tracks and what looked like a bobcat print.
The sites are pretty far from the entrance of the park and the park is about 10 miles to nearest grocery - so try not to forget the essentials. The good part about that is you get zero road noise.
Park road is a mixture of gravel and blacktop and is rough in some spots. Just drive it slow and you won't rearrange the groceries.
Sites have fire rings, picnic tables and an abundance of shade.
