“Nice park, no rule enforcement”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We generally enjoy COE parks but this one let us down. The park itself is nice and has great potential. However, there are no enforcement of the rules. There are a lot of people living in tents that stay here for more than 14 day limit. They would be up way past quiet hours and were very loud. Park rangers or camp hosts were no where t... more

“Great for a few nights”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Nice large spots to back in. Water hookup on most sites is very far away and must have 2 long hoses to reach. Luckily we found a site that was closer and used our 50 foot hose to hookup.

Had quite a few cars come in... more

“Peaceful”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2018

Overall Rating

This is one of our favorite places to stay even in tents it’s close to home but a nice getaway and there is nice views all around and your close to a gas station if you run out of beer plus our dogs love swimming in the lake.

“Beautiful Setting - No Verizon Service”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2015

Overall Rating

Corp of Engineer parks are inexpensive campgrounds to stay in. This one is a better than average with spacious sites set above a large reservoir. Some sites have water and electricity. But Verizon Cell Service was not even good enough to text. Ranger said AT&T works.
