Overall Rating

We stayed at the Lowe campground, also known as the Beach Campground. The two star rating was for proximity to the water. It was incredible! A short walk to the water, easy access for rafting and swimming. The first night was a Friday and it was quiet. Saturday was a different story. Kids everywhere, dogs running loose, wall to wall people. The sites are too close together and there's no privacy. The Beach Campground is right next to the day use beach. Because it was a holiday weekend, it was a super crowded to day users started mingling into the campground, plopping down wherever they felt like, including our campsite. No, not just the beach, but at our camp table! My husband got into it with a few men after he asked them to leave our site.
The staff was invisible, I think I saw them once. The campground became so crowded with vehicles it became a parking lot. It may be an enjoyable place during the week but we will not be going back.

“Excellent Primitive camping experience”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2015

Overall Rating

We have stayed at Starvation a couple of times now. Our last time was in the full hook up section that sits on top of the bluff and is close to the boat ramp. It was great but there isn't a lot of shade and the sites are fairly close to each other.

This last outing was in the Indian Bay campground which is considered "primitive" camping. There are no hook ups but there are decent vault toilets. We ended up camping with a bunch of friends right on the beach and it was incredible. We didn't have a dedicated camp site number but there are a number of reservable sites that ring the lake and beach area and even more sites across the road with easy beach access. The dedicated sites looked to be fairly level with tables and fire rings. Still not a lot of shade but there are a lot of cedar tree's and brush around which adds to the more secluded nature of each site.
Starvation lake is a great clean lake with cool/cold water but still warm enough for some great boating, swimming etc......
I would visit here again and probably reserve one of the camp sites that ring the lake since the other beach area's are first come first serve only.
