The main West Overlook campsite was full when we tried to online book 4 hrs prior to arrival so found a spot here. Arrived at 10pm and pretty dark arrival road, but all good. Our site was gravel and pretty close to the other sites in the first loop. Back loop more spacious with flat concrete pads. Back loop also quieter. Front loop more night fishing activity and partying. Clean bathroom with showers. Electric and water at sites. Best part of Army Corp sites is they have recycling!!! Thank you! Used dump station at West Overlook.

We didn’t realize that a reservation was necessary and the website didn’t allow a same day reservation and the phone was a forever hold. We “squatted” for the night hoping our site wasn’t reserved and figured we’d settle up in the morning. Bathroom has flush toilets and 2 showers. Sites are both gravel and paved and reasonably level.
