Plesant Campground but use GPS to find

Lake McClellan Campground is a nice campground in the middle of the Texas panhandle. Signs on the interstate direct you to the exit, but after that don't expect any other signage to help you find the campground, the only other sign you will get is the National Grasslands sign when you reach the area. Use your GPS or Google Maps to find you way and you will not have any trouble. After entering the Grassland do not take the first entrance you see on the left(dirt road leading to East Bluff#1 campground), but take the second paved entrance. Neither have a sign. The road is paved all the way to the campground. Once you turn off the main road their will be a road to the right which leads to the dump station. Just past this is a fork in the road with a sign for Lake McClellan. Take the road to the right for Lake McClellan Campground, going to the left will take you to McDowell Campground. Pay station will be on your left as you drive in, continue past the pay station to the camping area.

The campground has hook up sites with electric and water($15), and non-hookup sites($10). The first 8 sites are just a large parking area for RVs, the remainder of the sites sit on small loops in the trees. All sites are nice and level. A few sites are missing their site numbers which made it a little difficult to figure out which site we were in. Campground has flush toilets with hot showers, one of the two restroom/shower building was locked. Site could use a little upkeep but for$10 for a sight with flushing toilets and showers, this is a good deal. Only a few other campers mid week in October. This are has ATV trails, so I am guessing it might get busy on the weekends. All sites have picnic tables, metal fire rings and most have pedestal grills as well.

Busy spots and quiet spots

This campground was on a large recreation area that included some ATV trails, which was pretty cool! There were several different camping areas that you could choose from: the right side was used mostly by ATV riders, the left along the lake was nearly full, then there were some sites away from the lake in the trees. I chose to stay in the trees, because it had pull through sites, was shaded, and it was more secluded.

At first, it was hard to find the bathroom and fee drop off point: they are located at the campsites to the right that the ATV riders use. The showers are NICE! They even have hot water. It was really nice to get a warm shower.

I was camping in my SylvanSport GO and discovered that right next to the wheels is an excellent sport to place gear. The beds overhang there and keeps tubs mostly dry! Also, I found out that it is pretty nice to turn the trailer around before setting up, that way the door is facing the car. It makes it more convenient for short trips back and forth.
