I love this army corps of engineer park. It lies 3 miles in of the main road. Their are two campgrounds here. One is primitive with vault toilets and one water source. Each site has four ring, and picknick table. There are several nice campsites around the shore line. Steep trails down to Lake at the end of pavement. Some parking there also. Pay for these spots furthur into the park at an atm type pay per campsite machine. Follow signs to public boat launch. As of 2019 8$ for primitive camp, 5$ parking at boat launch.
Official Campground with hookups 22$ and up, and a boat launch with dock. Some sites are more private than others, bath and showers, few have steep trails to lake. There is a nice beach with sand and swimming area. Also tent camping sites right above the swim area for 18$. The sunset view from there is very nice. There's benches!
This lake has heavy boat traffic, lots of fisherman and jet skies. During the week, it's quite. A really nice place to visit. I SUP along the shoreline and in coves, but lots of chop on the weekends.
Also many trails for hiking, tho I've not hiked there.
this campground is higher up in elevation in relation to the region. We stayed in a tent site that had a nice trail to the lake which was rocky with no beach but fun for older kids to swim. It is also close to the Cartecay River where you can rent tubes or kayaks for a short trip down the river with a shuttle.
We enjoyed the campground with the lake/beach area for the kids to swim. Very relaxing and the sites had some room to run around.
