This recreation area is part of Clinton Lake
Another great state park. Stayed in camp ground 1 in the off season so wasn’t too packed but it was busy. The great part is that the sites are so large, at least on the lake side, which is actually a bit away from the lake, but accessible by stairs from the camp sites. Plenty of distance between campers. The gravel pads and paved roads made it very easy to get into spot and set up. The park had all the amenities and not too far a drive from town for supplies if needed. In addition to a number of hiking trails, they had a disk golf course and an archery range. The park has a day use fee of $5 a day per vehicle which is independent from the state camping fee. But they offered me an annual pass (calendar year) of $25 for the day use.
Overall it’s a very nice park, close to the lake and lots of space. The biggest drawback is some pretty poorly maintained showers & bathrooms. The larger shower houses were fine but the satellite vaulted toilets looked like they hadn’t been swept in a few years. If you’re an rv camper who showers in your rig it’s a great place, if your a tent camper be ready for some ick.
Free dispersed camping at camp area 3. Showers have warm water. Very muggy in the summer.
Weird campsites, not enough trees, super loud at night due to traffic, the lake is disgusting and we ended up leaving after one night. Would never return.
We have tent camped here often. Most of the sites are spacious. It's not unusual to find a site with no neighbors. The campground is uphill from the lake but the are hiking trails to the lake as well as other trails around the park. Vault toilets and flush toilets with showers are available. They could be better maintained. Overall it is a nice quiet campground for a quick getaway. Also, very close to Lawrence.
It's good for kids because it has a field and a playground. Some primitive sites do NOT have a fire pit. Bathrooms are bug filled. Even the showers that close all the way. Some campers look like they live there.
We love this campsite, especially in the off months! We always get a great private campsite, but I can see where in more popular months, it can get crowded! Bathrooms are clean, dog friendly! Hiking trails are great too!
Had a large family gathering here. crowded but clean and fun.
I stayed at the free site a ways from the lake called Woodbridge public use area and the hiking trail that connected this spot to the lake was killer as well as the campground was beautiful I camped in the rain for 2 of the 3 nights I stayed here and it was still a very very enjoyable experience and it FREE!!
If you enjoy no privacy and camping on top of your neighbor, look no further! If you the your dogs like we do, expect to keep them tied up on a short line and for the park rangers to come check every few hours. For a place with issues of bodies in the lake and homeless squatters, strange for rangers top consistently come into other campsites to check on illegal activity. We tried to go swimming once and was met with piles of dead fish on the swimming beach. Plus side, it's close and bathrooms are clean.
