It was ones a very nice park but has gone down hill in the last few years. Sad a beautiful lake.

Good family campground

Many of the sites are shaded and face the river. This water flow is after the dam, so has a very strong current. Definitely not for swimming, but an okay view. Playgrounds available for the kids.

Good views, launch and 2 swimming areas

Part of the day use area has been converted into a campground in 2018. There are eight campsites, each with a level gravel pad tent area, picnic table and grill. There is group fire pit area, with a picnic table. Unfortunately, the only place to have a fire at your campsite is in the grill. None of the sites have electricity. There is a central water spigot. The restroom has flush toilets, but no showers. You can go to one of the other many Corps of Engineers campgrounds nearby to shower. Both times we have stayed here, we were the only ones there. It's so new, almost no one knows of its existence. To either side of it, there is a swimming area in the day use area and at the boat launch / swimming beach. All sites have a water view.

Wonderful campground! Great people taking care of it. Will be visiting a lot!

Peaceful Escape

Very nice sites and bath house. Grounds are kept in immaculent condition. Sites have electric, water and sewer. No cable TV but if you have HDTV antenna, you will get several Meridian stations. Reasonably priced. We are fortunate to have this quality campground nearby.

Perfection..

There tons of hiking, drinking water, bathrooms, and you can stay here 14 days. what more can you ask for. Literally tons and tons and tons of hiking. Honestly we've been super lucky and have not seen man campers lately!

National Forest lakeside camping

Nice cozy campground on the lake. The campsites are almost all right next to the water, but there isn’t too much tree cover despite very large campsites. This may help a little with increasing breeze since we didn’t have as many bugs as we expected. Yay: Nice little beach for swimming, boating and fishing. All quite clean, water and power at each campsite, great showers. Simple but all you could want.

Nay: Nice hiking trails around the lake, and other great trails nearby.  

Surprise:  Saw eagles and some cute little red birds we couldn’t identify :) There is a disc golf course nearby (but we don’t play).

Free primitive camping

This is as simple and as it gets, but it does have restrooms. This is primitive camping so there are no hookups and nothing extras, just a nice place to pitch a tent or park. You can not reserve this site but it’s free. There are a few other similar primitive campsites in the park nearby. Nice and wooded.

Yay: simple camping! Very pretty wooded area. Lots of hiking trails nearby.

Nay: no map or info of any sort once you’re there.

Surprise: exceptional in fall!

Fun times

A great place to go and get away and enjoy the scenery. I'll go back again.

Great!

Good times, good fun and great friends.
