Nice campground on an underrated lake

Vibe: Classic quiet Army Corp park. Almost all RVs. Ours was the only tent. 

Cleanliness: Above average 

Facilities: Average 

General spots: Good size, good spacing, not private, some back up to lake, but there is a sizable drop off to lake level.

Nice views of the Lake

Very nice and clean campground. Reserve early though this one fills up fast. We camped here in the middle of the week and they where already at 75%. Lake side spots are not advisable if you have little ones, the bluffs are very close to the fire pits and have about a 30ft drop.
