Old but good

Grew up coming here for the summer to fish, swim, ski and use the water park. It is an older park but with that being said it has many years left of good camping. The bathrooms are always clean. Many things were closed when we went due to covid but are normally up and running. Love the area. The trails are an addition to the park. We love to get out and walk the woods. The old campground is where we like to stay. Mostly quiet and this is the side with the primitive tent camping. This side also has a good bit of shaded spots that are on the water.

A Hidden Gem

Great little lake with a beautiful view. Our Verizon Phone picked up well. Loved the hiking trails around the lake. Well maintained. We stayed on site 31, a pullthrough. Two fire pits and a very large area to play areound the camper. Not a lot of campers in the off season. Will definitely be back with kayaks. The other loop had a private swimming spot. How cool is that?

Nice small park, friendly staff and several trails to hike, some not on the

The campground is showing its age a bit, but is still nice and well maintained. We were in site 37 for 5 days, which was right across the road from one of the few street lights. The oneway campground loop is narrow, and a little tight in places for bigger rigs, but not too bad. Most of the sites in the loop we were in looked reasonably level, as was our site. Many of the sites in the other loop looked pretty unlevel. The campground was largely empty while we were there.

Be aware, there is no posted restriction that dogs be leashed in this park and we saw several being walked off leash. One of the staff’s dogs, we presume, was also wandering around loose by the office.

AT&T coverage was“fair”, generally with 1-2 Bars and up to~1 MB/s, but usually less than 0.4 MB/s. There is no WiFi, no cable, and no DISH satellite coverage at our site, on the lake, with a roof mounted dish, and no leaves on the trees. We were able to get 4 strong OTA DTV channels with our omni antenna however.

Excellent state park!

We loved our stay. Beautiful park, nice campsites, heated and clean bathroom, best spots are on the lake. We stayed in spot 15 and it was beautiful.

A couple reasons I didn’t give it 5 stars, even though we loved it. First, we reserved a spot weeks prior and someone was in it when we arrived around 5pm. The park was very helpful and accommodating once we found the right phone number. I wish they would put signs on the reserved spots to avoid the hassle.

Second, they do not sell firewood here anymore, but there is a gas station across the street that does.

Also, the fire ring and the table/grill are on opposite sides on the parking spaces and there are no cooking grates on the fire ring unfortunately. But the grill was very clean!

But seriously, would recommend!!! Just want to help our fellow campers out with some details of the digs!

Great quiet campground

We had site 39 that backed right up to the lake. Campground was very clean and easy to get around. This was a great place to get away and just sit by the lake enjoying the day. There weren’t any hiking trails but you can just walk around the whole campground which was about 4 miles. Site are pretty level, very clean, and lots of tree coverage.

Big nice place

Lot’s to do here. Hiking, boating, pool, water slides.

Made the best of it

I booked a site that we did not know anything about. This was the first time we stayed in the newer loop. We had tent camped in the older section about 5 year’s ago and had a wonderful time. When we arrived on Thursday evening to our site I didn’t know if it was going to be wide enough to let the steps down without fall into the 6 ft ditch. After some measuring of the slide outs and maneuvering over 6 inches from the electrical pole. We set up camp. I had to dig up the sewer tap that was running up hill. We made the best of it by setting everything up in front of the camper. The picnic table and fire pit was on the opposite side of the camper up hill with about 8 inches of pine needles going up. Not practical. So we didn’t use that area. Most of the sites were the same way with the picnic area on the opposite side of camper. The lake area was nice, did some fishing out of the canoe and kayaking when there wasn’t 30 boats out. Lake was closed for swimming. Overall we made the best of it. We will definitely not be staying at site 45 again. Staff was friendly and there were park rangers riding by all the time. There are definitely better sites, not all.

Great camping on the lake

We arrived at Twiltley Branch at 10pm after two other campgrounds were unexpectedly closed. The caretakers had us check in online and let us sneak into the primitive campsite even though they were technically closed for the night. We drove to the site in the dark and set up camp, not quite knowing what to expect. There were only two other campers at the site, the campground had water stations and fire pits with attached cooking grills and a very well kept outhouse. The best thing about this site was the access to the lake and the little beach where you can wade and swim! This campsite is prone to flooding so it’s not always available. There is a boat launch nearby so we did hear some traffic from boats coming and going but otherwise it was nice and quiet.

Pro tip. There are two campsites right by the lake that are secluded and shaded by trees. They give you almost private access to the lake!

This was such a lovely surprise and we had a great stay!

Meeting Quarantina, our gently used Flying Cloud 23

We met our camper (and her prior owner) here at ClarkCo State Park. A perfect place to be introduced to her, complete our purchase and get oriented to our new (to us) camper. Lake side, lots of tree coverage has helped the August 95degree MS temps. Friendly neighboring campers, lots of kids swimming and kayaking. We even took the time to walk a trail or two. Dog friendly, easy hook ups. Prefect first camping experience so far.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

We stayed for 2 nights in site 83, which is on the lake. Kayaking, boating, swimming, and fishing! Beautiful grounds, nice level site. Some sites weren't as pretty. This one has a view of the lake, very spacious site, and lots of shade trees. I don't recommend the bath house, too many spiders!!! Cabins available, but they didn't appear to be in the best of condition. No store. Pets are welcome.
