Army corps of engineers campground

Large campground with many campsites.  Some offer electric.  Campers can expect to be cramped end over end like sardines.  The lake is nice and offers a boat ramp.  It is a clean lake but does have zebra mussels.  Nice walk around the campsite.  There is a dam with a nice fishing pier.  Located right in town with amenities if needed.  Nice car camping location.
