Good Campground

This is a Federal Campground and is quite clean and taken care of. It has nice sites, clean bath houses. The sites are uneven so plan on leveling  you camper. It dose have a boat ramp and swimming area that is also well maintained. The turns into sites are tight so just be aware

Great peninsula camping

Great little park with lake views, sandy swimming beach, hiking, boating, and state parks and forests nearby for even more recreation options. The campground is among the trees for great shade and so-so privacy. Some spots are lakeside (numbers 1 through 19), but all are very close to the water.…
