Beautiful spot! I've been coming here since high school and it's still beautiful and well kept. Had a great time on a 60 minute bird watching tour where our captain Winston slowly navigated the beautiful lake. Our guide was super nice and knowledgeable about the area birds. Great time!
Great Family Fun! Bathrooms are clean! Little store was well stocked. Dog friendly areas away from the beach 🙂 We do reserve a campsite for several nights at least once a year. Boat docking is easy, even for beginners. Totally worth the drive, and day pass fee is very reasonable! We paid $15 on a Friday.
My family had a great time at the lake and campground. The campground spots are very close together. Be prepared to be right next to your neighbors, but the facilities are great. Clean bathrooms, showers, store, and a visitors center.
Medium size park with a beach and good size marina. Plenty of shade and places to grill. Dogs and droning not allowed. Boating, swimming, kayaks, & canoes are allowed. No skiing that we could see. Park staff is very friendly and helpful. The park is beautiful, but I would not visit again. We were told it gets very busy and they close it after a certain number of people enter. We were not there at a busy time though. We went on a weekday and the kids were in school. Call before you go to make sure they are open. They close the park at 4:30. But the main reason I would not go again is that I am an avid flyer of drones and they don't allow it. Also, it is not free to get in. It wasn't a concern for us though, as we have a state park pass. The park is very kid friendly, too.
Same amazing place! Best time to go is late July. On your way enjoy the vineyards before you head down to your camp site and paddle board. Rangers are always informative, constantly boat in to take away trash. Bathrooms and showers are very clean👍 Spot 38 is always the favorite, boat in but accessible by stairs, able to fit 4 families with ease, plenty of room for multiple hammocks and continuous shade. Fishing is an ease, boys caught catfish, base and smaller fish. Kids where able to catch crawfish and chase after bullfrogs. The bird trail was exciting in the morning, over 20 different species.
