When we were traveling the southeast last summer we found no better camping area than this one. It was free, had showers, and was next to a perfect lake to paddle board and hike around. There were playgrounds, a dock, and a nice trail around the lake. We would stay here anytime and recommend anyone else to do the same. We had zero issues here. There were a few other campers. There are limited sites and first come first serve so it may be hit or miss.
What’s better than parking overnight at a gorgeous lake? Parking there for FREE with an electric hookup. Plus the town has a great Route 66/Old Town Museum for cheap too! A great find!
There’s about 5 free RV pads with hookups, and 4 tent camping areas. Regular restrooms with a shower in both the men and woman’s; however, there is only one. Not long after setting up our tent a few homeless people came up asking for money and a woman from the local shelter showed up to bring supplies to them and told us it may be dangerous for us to stay the night so we left.
