This is not a large campground but the coziness is what makes it a very special place as you see the sun come up over the lake. There is a primitive (dirt) boat landing located within the campground for smaller vessels. OHV/ATVs including street legal are allowed for ingress and egress (to and from your campsite to the road) only. Joy riding is not allowed in the campground or on the beach.____

Natural Features

Navajo Lake dike was constructed many years ago to provide area visitors with an excellent recreational experience that provides fishing and boating for all ages. The dike is a very popular place to catch fish in the deeper waters if you are fishing from shore. Water travels from under the the lake through a 2 mile lava tube and exits at what is called Cascade Falls. Cascade Falls is a must see trail that follows the rim 3/4 miles to the falls.

Camping on top of each other

Good access to the lake, but absolutely not dispersed camping. Unless you like camping within 20ft of strangers with their RVs and screaming kids, I do not recommend

Must come back!

We stopped for the night and had the best experience! We had bathrooms right behind our campsite and a perfect view of the lake from the upper campsites. The best part was absolutely no mosquitoes so we were able to hangout by the campfire all night with no bug spray needed lol. The campsites were pretty close together so we got to listen to a campsites baby crying most of the night but, other than that it was awesome!
