A'll sights near water were mostly sun. Beautiful. Friendly. Fishing, boating
Great camp site and facilities. We ended up cutting our stay short because the lake was flooded to bad that the ramp was covered and we couldn't get the boat in the water. :(
this place was such a wonderful get away! the views are absolutely amazing, and the camp ground has never been packed full when i visit, adding to the peacefulness and privacy. this place is such a beautiful place, I cant wait to go back!
First to Review
Visited two nights as part of a Mark Twain related trip. Lots of fisherman camping, not as many Mark Twain nerds. Didn't bring children, but noticed a playground near the campsites. Decently spaced campsites and vault toilets. Lake was beautiful.
