Great for a lake campground

Lake camping isn't my favorite because often times the sites are too close together for the privacy and quiet that I prefer that being said Hawker point is my favorite lake campground. Many sites are well spaced and shaded. Campground host is friendly

Private and Nearly Perfect

Just got home from a weekend stay at site C19 at Hawker Point COE Park. This particular site was just up the hill from the lake and completely private. The walk to the lake was about 50 yards and a little steep but we managed to carry two kayaks down and up without too much trouble (and we are a middle-aged couple), and it was totally worth the effort because it was as if we had our own private cove.

The site is very spacious and shaded with plenty of trees for our hammocks and clothesline. Lots of level places for tents. The park attendants were very friendly and helpful.

C19 has no electricity or water and the closest vault toilet is a good walk down the road. The shower houses were driving distance away. We have a shower tent, so that wasn’t an issue for us.

We drove through the rest of this park to check out A and B campground loops. A loop consists of full hookup sites and many sit right on the water. Little shade and crowded, but if you like to play on the lake all day these might be for you. B loop had pretty wooded sites but many were not close to the water. C loop is where it’s at!

Friendly atmosphere

Welcomed with a smile and an open ear to listen

Nice lake side camp ground

I enjoy camping here because the sites are spacious. The lake is clear and has good fishing. The bath houses leave a little to be desired. You have drive half a mile to get to them.

Great Camping

Awesome lake, fishing is decent, the food at the Marina is great

Very nice

This campground is very nice, it has a nice restroom and shower facility and nice campsites. It also has a campsite that accommodates handicap. It also includes a playground and is within driving distance(10-15 minutes) from the lake 10/10 would recommend.

First to Review
Great for off-season roughing it.

My family has been camping here in October- after winterization, thus no water- for decades. In season, there are nearby showers and running water. Sites are large and heavily shaded. The sandy swim beach is clean and fun, even off-season. Lots of places to hike and fish. Great place for boating. The bathrooms are generally kept clean. I have little experience here during season, but highly recommend it if you are looking for a quiet place to camp off-season… unless you come the same weekend as my large family. :)

Crabtree cove

We love camping here every year. It’s clean with plenty of space.

Nice with lots of amenities

RV sites are roomy with pleoof maneuvering space. Nicely stocked store, horse stable, fishing, boating, swimming, geocaching are all available. Shower & bathroom were clean and well kept. Lots of space between sites, so neighbors aren’t on top of you.

Local fav

Hawker Point campground together with the lake is great. The campground was well kept, mowed, clean and fellow campers were friendly while at the same time respectful of others .

The lake is to die for. Water was clear clean and like glass. We have kayaks so our morning trips were accidently long, peaceful and awesome.

Make reservations early because it is full most of the time. Mon Tues, Wed seem to be the only openings if you wait too long.

Also, fill your rig with water before you go. There are no water hookups.
