I arrived late and the gps coordinates got me close, but I had to do a slow cruise on 447 and finally found the pull off. When you are close-gps will tell you 1/4 mile- you will cross a cattle grate (going north) and the large entrance pull off...
Arrived around 5:30 and there was one other small tow behind in the one large gravel area. I went down the gravel road 100 yards and found a level spot off the main road. Fair amount of traffic noise, but I expected it due to location next to i80....
Middle of January and I was the only one there. It is small, but there are 2 areas to set up. There is a pit toilet and there are picnic tables and fire rings. No other amenities that I could see. The camping areas are gravel and they are flat but...
Easy to find and not busy. I was the only camper. No facilities. Gravel sites. Most not level. Some local traffic going to the back of the park (not sure why).
Sidewinder Rd is washboard until it’s a mix of heavy gravel/sand/dirt. If you press through this it thins out and then you arrive at a large open area of the same heavy g/s/d, but it is hard packed. It’s not easy to identify the area in the dark...
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....
There is a lot just off the road Rd 14 into Chappel where larger rigs could park. We drove back the dirt lane that runs along the north side of the lake and stopped in the turnaround. Nice view of the golf course and lake. Truck and and train...
First option is large dirt lot with plenty of room. Drive back the wide dirt road and you can pull into the brush and go until you find your perfect spot. Others are around but not close. Some highway noise but not annoying.
Arrive early and get a river side spot, otherwise you’re in the large upper open lot. Not as private, but easy access and still quiet.
Looks like a good spot, but it is still closed.
