Steamboat Rock State Park

This is a wonderul campground.  It has 162 campsites for trailers, tents and RV's  with 136 full hookups.  It is located along Banks Lake,  But***don't expect to get a site unless you book it a year in advance. That's how popular this park is.  It has full RV hookup with disabled spots that can be reserved.  Sometimes there are sites for overnight stay that become available.  Just don't depend on getting one with a reservation.

Pets are okay but have to be controlled. 

 There is a boat launch and a store.  If you are lucky you might be in time to rent a motorized boat.  There is a boat launch fee.  The boats at the store have their own docks. 

    Primitive and equestrain sites are available as well as dump sites, showers, flush toilets.  Each campstie has a table, fire-ring and grate.  The primitive sites are part of the park and are under the same rules the main park has.  Rangers do check the sites even late at night.  No generators after a certain hour.  This park does enforce its rules.  

     Banks lake is 27 miles long with lots of little inlets to pull off and enjoy. 

You can easily travel to Grand Coulee Dam or the casino during your stay.  Stores are within a reasonable drive.  Grand Coulee Dam puts on a magnificent laser show over the dam on the 4th of July as well as fireworks display.

     This is my favorite park!  I highy recommend staying if you get the opportunity!  

     Last time I checked, it was $45.oo per night.

Good fishing

The campground is located on O'Sullivan Reservior in the middle of nowhere.  It has excellent fishing and a plenty of room to boat to different areas to fish.  The campground has tent and RV spaces with hookups.  There is a fish cleaning station and a shower, restroom area near the docks.  Fish that can be found are:  Walleye, Crappie, Bass, Trout.  There are also a lot of Carp to encounter. Be prepared for various weather conditions and sometimes windy conditions.  Fishing can be done on the banks.  Lots of little hidden potholes in the area if you are willing to look around the area.  There is a country store within a comfortable driving distance or bike ride.  Picnic tables and grass are available.  The camping can be cramped with little shade.  The Park Rangers can be cantankerous and at times can be rude.  The Park Host changes so you never know if you will get someone helpful or military rules.  Don't expect the other campers to respect your night of quiet.  Seems there isn't much in the way of enforcement.  Overall the Reservior is worth it and just enjoy it.
