Easy access, peacefull

Stayed in October, so not busy, level sites w elec n water, dump station n dumpsters in park.   Access Park Pass Honored so discount given.  Verizon worked for wifi most of the time, stayed 2 nights.

Not impressed

Drove through a rough part of town n roads, to get to park, a bit confusing to get there w GPS, arrived w no reservation definitely need one or arrive very very early in day. 

Was full, not able to enter, turned around to find alternate park for night.

Was closed for updating in October no access

Reviewed park on line ACE site, no notice that is was going to be closed, definitely was when arrived, had to find alternate park.

I’m all about value and experience and this place serves both.

$12 a night, full hookup potential AND you are walking distance to the mine!!! For $20 you can go spend the day diggin through dirt and finding crystals. I don’t think everyone has the luck we had but we came after a rain and cleaned up. Hundred bucks in gems. Ok bathrooms and laundry… serves the purpose you’d expect from a $12 a night place. The REAL draw here is the mine and we had a blast! I do recommend. We took the spot up top the hill [upper left corner] and found crystals in our campsite around the fire pit :)))

4wd access, super secluded

Luckily it hadn’t rained in a while. The trails to get to this rec area are for the 4wd’s and off-road vehicles. Great point to camp with great access to water. Didn’t see a boat ramp but wasn’t looking either. If you really want to get away, this is the spot!

Primitive, beautiful, great water access

Long gravel road to make it there but totally worth it. Off-road vehicle trails, boat ramp, great camping spots right by the water.

Small and crowded

It’s hard to believe this little campground is on the farside of the touristy Hot Springs. A nice little stream runs along the backside of the campground and it’s actually quiet. You can hike up and over the hill to see the springs. Not a lot of space to put a bunch of toys but a well maintained area.

Girls weekend

We visited for Easter and even with the chill it was a good trip. We were on the hill top, the view was limited but the night sky awesome. It was busy with many families but we had more then enough space to set up and plenty of privacy. The facilities were older but in good shape and well maintained. Plenty of activities to do around the park and on the water. Excellent family get away. Hot Springs is within easy driving distance.

Lakeside camping

Perfect lakeside camping. Peaceful and relaxing. Geese, ducks, birds and squirrels are your visitors.  Very quiet on the banks and convenient to the restroom and bathhouse. Loved the sunset and sunrise on the lake. Hiking to the waterfall was crowded and places difficult to maneuver.  Worth the hike though. 

Camping for all ages and area is clean. Enjoyed this park and will stay here again.

One of our favorites

My wife and I have camped at Lake Catherine a couple of times. The water fall is at its best in the spring. Nice trails. The bathhouses are clean. Can’t wait for spring to go back.
