One of my favorites

Great COE campground on a beautiful lake for fishing and kayaking. There are a variety of sites, some closer together and less private along the beach and others well spaced with shade trees and plenty of vegitation for privacy. No problems in May, but picked up chiggers in August in the tall grass abutting the lake. Take precautions if you visit this park.

4 out if 5 stars

This is a nice park. It is clean and well maintained. The sites are slightly larger than the usual and the lake is gorgeous. It was great to sit by the lake and watch the water fowl and many fishers.

Great place to kayak and ride your bike.

You really can't wade into the lake from your site because of water grass and murky water, but there is a swimming beach.

The sites are close to your neighbor with few trees. Not much coverage, nor shielding between you and your neighbor. We could have used a bit more of that. The sites have large "yard" areas between the site and the water. This is a great place to play, picnic or sit in chairs and watch the lake.

It was very quiet while we were there and at 2/3 capacity. The bathrooms and shower were heated (it was in 40's) and clean.

George Bagby State Park and Marina can be seen across the lake. Don't bother going there, nothing to see.

There are two restaurants in the area. One in the state parks lodge and Marcos Bar and Grill about a mile outside the gate. (Reviews are good) but we didn't eat at either. We went to Eufaula for the day, once and ate a fantastic meal at Thelma's Restaurant.

Verizon LTE was 4/5 bars and no issues streaming.

Large sites, most have shade, great camping

The sites are well spaced, most are water front and easy access to water or have water view. They have full hookups!! Great Verizon and AT&T signals. Some sites are at the beach if you have kids. Took fishing boat, kayak and Ebike. Has two walking trails, playground, large dog park, fish cleaning station and huge beach. Bathrooms are very clean and large and hot water in the wintertime and placed throughout the park. Also a nice laundry facility.Camp hosts were nice and helpful. Had full moon while here and the nice time was beautiful as well as fabulous sunrises and sunsets. Our two golden retrievers loved it. It is south of the nat line but no bugs or misquotes in January! We will be back.
