Spectacular view of the lake!

West overlook provides some of the best views of the lake from your own campsite. Campsites here only offer electric hook ups but do provide showers and bathrooms.

Family campground

This is a real family oriented campground. Although it is a primative campground, it allows for fishing, boating and a playground.

Quite ......except for the occasional trains. 🤔

It is a small camping area with the standard amenities. I like it because you can se the barge traffic on the river. I have camped here on more than several occasions.

Nice place

Took our new camper out for a one night stay. It’s a nice small place with a nice little pond. The only real complaint we had was that there was no lights in the bathrooms, we didn’t want to use the campers bathroom for just one night. There were other bathrooms but they were locked. $20 a night…

Overnight stay

Wooded walk-in tent sites

My son and I camped here several times circa 2005. Always a good time. You can walk through the forest to get to the injured raptor center with outdoor aviaries.
