Large Lake for Sailing

Nice camping spots, cabins also available. You can rent boats at the marina. Tubing, fishing, kayaking and hiking also available.

Wonderful place to visit

We have stayed here twice now, both times it was amazing. The on-site restaurant is a nice perk when you simply don’t want to cook. Small lake, but everything is clean and well maintained. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

No lake view but nice and woodsy

We stayed in spot 65 in the east campground. The playground was clean. The bathrooms were clean but had a sewage smell. Our spot had plenty of shade. The pad was broken on door side so we couldn't use the mat because it dropped off about 2 inches. You can see the marina when you walk in but most spots don't have a lake view. our spot backed right up to the woods and our table was in the woods. We had a raccoon in our stuff every night :/ The flies were also out of control. Overall, I probably wouldn't return here.

A former private lake

What a gem! Amazing swimming beach, modern bath house and great restaurant.

A handful of small campgrounds surround the lake. Almost every spot is on the water.

Only drawback is restrooms are sometimes a short walk away.

Very nice

Is Reservoir is a very beautiful place to hang out for the day. I usually go fishing there however since this is a man-made lake I'm not sure whether I'm catching farm-raised fish or if they are NatUral fish, it doesn't really affect the sport of fishing, but it seemed like we caught some farm raised fish because their meat didn't taste as well
