Large campground on the lake

This was a large campground with lots of sites, they have a mix of electric and non electric sites. We stayed in 106 with electric, this was a large site the backed up to the road but it was fairly woods so the road didn’t bother us. This has 2 boat ramps and a fishing pier. You can beach your boat but the spots can fill up pretty fast

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.
