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.

My favorite campground

This quant little campground is my favorite. There's plenty of room between sites in the electric section and there's even more room along the river in the primitive section, which is my personal favorite. The bathroom /shower house is the nicest & cleanest I've seen. The camp host's are very…

Gorgeous state park!

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

Many things to do here

Backbone is a very diverse area. There are miles of trails. Is hiking your thing? What about equestrian? Maybe mountain bike trails? You can even take the family for a nice leisurely walk on the easier trails. Exploring is fun at this park because there is so much to see. The Trout stream was busy…

Great view of the river

The park is a little hard to find as the signs are not obvious and the road circles the greyhound track and a casino hotel.  Many of the sites have a riverview and a second line of sites back up to the woods.  There was evidence of wet conditions and the park had recently added some gravel to the…
