    This is a great primitive beach area. There is adequate parking at this ramp. This is one of the three ramps on the lake that are functional when the lake drops to 16 feet low.

    Steele Creek Park is a Corps of Engineering park which offers primitive camping and there are limited facilities in the Park. The park is located just south of Morgan and Lakeside Marina. It is an open access Park. There are two primary areas of the park. The first is on the river channel side of the park and is on the north side of the Steele Creek Park. This area has great camp sites on a bluff overlooking the lake. This side also has some good natural beach area below the camp sites. The southern section of the park overlooks Steele Creek itself. This is a brushy creek and while there is some swimming areas available, it is not as swim friendly as the other side. Each side of the park has a boat ramp. This is a remote park area and is patrolled on some frequency by the Sheriff’s Department. Boat launching is FREE at both ramps.
