We stayed for 3 nights here and loved the Campground/area. We had two RVs and a tent and the pull through locations were great. Bathrooms were the cleanest I've ever seen a campground bathroom be! Firewood was available to purchase, close to the lake.
This is a fun place close to the lake. Lots of really good fishing from shore as well as boat access. The camp sites are big with nice tables and lots of room.
They have nice bathrooms, and big campsites. Nice tables at the campsite and it is close to the lake. We caught lots of crawfish and lots of trout.
Preferred the nearby Aspen Grove campground to this one. There is very little shade and most camp spots are pretty exposed. Lots of RVs here but there is plenty of space to spread out. Multiple loops are open.
