Wild turkey, deer, squirrels, and ducks and other waterfowl can often be found along the lakeside. At lunch or dinner, enjoy the picnic area equipped with barbeque grills and picnic tables. For added convenience, Flint Creek also has 1 private pavilion and 2 enclosed lodge halls. Every July 4th holiday, the water park holds it annual Fireworks Display enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. An annual haunted forest is held the Saturday before Halloween.
The business district of Wiggins lies two miles outside Flint Creek's entrance gate which features grocery stores, specialty shops, fuel, a hospital, golf course, camping, bait and fishing supplies, video rentals, and restaurants.
My boyfriend and I car camp and try to stay in primitive areas for the lesser (or no) fees. This site was $15 for primitive camping but included a water spigot as well as port-o-potties. There were also fire rings at each camping site.
We stayed here during Halloween and it was pretty crowded. We prefer more secluded camping sites, and this campground provides plenty of space despite being so packed. There were several RV campgrounds that had decorations and trick-or-treating.
We didn’t have any problems with rowdy kids or quiet time. Everybody was mostly respectful. We did encounter coyote, deer, and lots of talkative geese, so be prepared for some wildlife interaction.
Waterpark is lake fed so not crystal clear water but clean and fun
Flint creek has TONS of sites with full hook ups in 30 and/or 50 amp and even a primitive (water only) tent sites. Different sections allow folks to feel like they are away from the crowds. Price is absolutely reasonable and there is night security by staff and local law enforcement.
The water park has a ton of slides and will keep kids young and old entertained sliding down the hill into the lake.
Several swimming holes and boat ramps lets you enjoy the lake however you want.
Flint Creek has a little of everything for everyone. There’s a large lake which is good fishing (there’s a boat launch in the park and in the campground itself) beach swimming areas (one for day use and the other for the campers) there’s an updated water park with slides and a lazy river. The water for this is pumped in from the lake so it’s not a fresh blue water like in a swimming pool! There’s a section of first come first served campsites and a section of reservation only sites. All the sites are blacktopped and are very nice. The bathhouses could use some attention though. The town of Wiggins has lots of restaurants and grocery stores very close by.
This is a great place to camp. Swimming, boating, hiking, fishing, and small playground available. The water park is not anything “great”, but it’s something for little kids ($12) per person.
The best sites are the first come first serve sites. These sites are in the Mohawk area. I would avoid the Kahaka area if you want a beach area as there isn’t one. All the bathrooms have no air conditioning. There are boat launches and many sites that you can anchor your boat at or near by.
Lots of shade and trees. Bring bug spray. The beaches are nice for campers.
Loved, loved this Campground…This was always our go-to. Lake is always great. Nearby Hiking trail a few geocaches and then there is the water park… I grew up in the old water park and it was great but when they upgraded, and it needed an upgrade bad, all the prices for pat Harrison went up… They have just started clearing the brush around the campsites, much needed, but there are so many things that are in disrepair and are taking a back seat to the water park. The bathrooms are always clean and in great working order… And the views of the lake are phenomenal. I gave it the rating because I see so much potential that is not being used.
