  • They have both tent camping and RV camping. Sites are pretty good size. Dump stations and rest rooms. The lake is really low but great for everyone tho swim. Lots of deer and rabbits running around.....  more

  • Me and the family go camping there all the time. The kids have a blast.
  • Visited this location for the first time over the weekend. Nice spot to just grab a picnic table and have a barbecue while looking at the water. There is a five dollar entrance fee that you can utilize with the self-help machine. There was a Ranger that did drive by twice to enforce tickets being utilized in vehicle. There is also restroom access here as well. Water level is not very high. We did get to see a family of geese while here as welll as a large cloud of smoke from a nearby fire 🔥 luckily did not spread in order to cause an evacuation. Overall was nice
  • Great Trip! Can't wait for the next 1.
  • I've camped there twice and I love it I wish they didn't close off the section of campground that I was camping in now because it's the closest campgrounds to the water because it's so low.
  • I grew up goin to this lake had a blast an now its time for my kids to have there first campin trip / fishin / boating fun there
