Nice and dark for star gazing

We, unfortunately, only got to spend one night here on our way through the area but enjoyed some great stargazing due to the park being quite dark.

We appreciated electric and water being at the campsite, especially for only $14 per night.

The only thing negative we noticed during our very short stay was that while the bathrooms were clean, they seemed old and small. Men and women each had just one shower stall and it was behind only a shower curtain in the main restroom area. (We were in the Wilkins Creek Loop.)

Staff was friendly and welcoming. We'd like to come back and explore the area more when we have time.

Friendly hosts

we camped at site 38 hoping for privacy but there were at least 2 campsites in plain sight (though we are probably a bit pickier than most). Trails were really nice despite it having rained the day and night before our hikes. Beautiful to see such towering trees. Saw some deer tracks too! Our dog picked up a tick here so just make sure you're checking your animals/selves

Very clean

Nice and clean park. Quiet but only half full. Only down side is the limited amount of full hookups and then only 1 dump station. All the trail signs are new and easy to find. Camp hosts definitely do there job on checking on the park and ensuring things are taken care of. Sites are pretty good size with table, grill and fire ring. Pads are fairly level, only took 1 2x12 in the one side, make sure to bring blocks for the rear stabilizers as the pad drops off at the back.

Cool weather, very clean

One of the cleanest and well maintained state parks I’ve been too. Campsites seemed to be a bit to close to each other but it was manageable. Boat ramps were extremely shallow. Also, hiking trail maps could be updated. One trail says it connects to another when they did not in fact. All in all great park that could be just a little better.

Great time

Went here a while back for some hiking and camping. Spent 3 days put here. Rained heavily on the 2nd day and small creeks and rivers became huge swells. This is for a more experienced hiker if ypu going during rainy season. Great views and feels awesome. 10/10

This place is huge!

On a whim, I reserved a site driving from Tennessee to Texas. Had to book through the app, which does not give you a good idea of what is booked or not. However, after getting here, there was NOBODY around. I would guess that this beautiful park has 60 or more sites? Maybe 10 of them had campers, so there was absolute quiet and darkness where we were. It was great! There is a discreet dump station on the loop. The lake was gorgeous, we walked in the evening to see lots of bats catching bugs. We could not have asked for a better experience. We had power and water hookups on our very level site. All the pads look well leveled. The park was well manicured and clean. VERY steep grades to get in and out of the area. Would definitely return. Wish I had taken more pictures for you all.

Beautiful, spacious and quiet!

We were in site B5 (one of 15 sites out of 124 that have FHU), for 12 days in September and October 2020. This site was not very level but we had great views of the lake out the front and side of our MH. It had a grill with table, picnic table and a fire ring. The sites are nicely sized, well-spaced apart and angled, providing nice privacy. This is our second time visiting this CG because we enjoyed it last year. It’s a fairly quiet campground– even the weekend partiers quieted down around 10ish. There is no WiFi or cable, Verizon 4G was 3-4 bars, 8 OTA channels. We did not use the bathrooms. The Park Hosts that arrived in October were very friendly. Beautiful sunsets on site B5!

Nice park, great fishing

Beautiful park with clean facilities and excellent fishing. Would recommend.

Absolutely beautiful!!!

We stayed at the Blue Jay Drive Campground and it was beautiful! We had three sites 14,15 and 17 number 15 was beautiful right on the lake neighbors were coming by and asking if they can take pictures of the site 15. Make sure you take plenty of water there is no water not even one spigot. They have a vaulted restroom similar to a portapotty. We took our own portable potty and thank god we did so. I would definitely take some seven dust for the little critters at the campsites. It’s very quiet at night and there’s so much to do there.


We found this place during a last minute Labor Day weekend scramble. Sounded good on paper.Gave them a call and found cabins were booked (as expected) and the only availability was 1st come 1st served. With a 7 hour drive ahead of us, we explained we needed more reassurances there would be a place for us. We were told we could rent the Pavillion out each day and camp in the beautiful grass field surrounding it, away from everyone. PERFECT!!! After a long day of work and an all night drive, I'm 36 hours no sleep when we arrive just after 7am. And immediately I can sum this place up in 2 simple words…HOBO CAMP. The gazebo was smack in the middle of everyone with extension cables running to it from all directions. The grass field was a gravel field. Broken down busses and old canoes littered the grounds. And we were also greeted by a festering dead squirrel on the way to the office. This place was so bad, I was ready to do another 7 back home right then and there before pulling my tent out the truck. (We found Big Fir at Lake Ouachita from this travesty and our weekend quickly, and vastly, improved! See my review on it!!)
