I’ll start by saying this was my first time actually camping the lake, our spot (Desert Tortoise site 173) was awesome. Granted our camper parking spot was definitely on a pretty steep incline but that only made for even more amazing views of the lake.
We got in like at 8 on our first night but everything was well marked and we had no issues finding our site. When we finally got set up we had an incredible sky full of stars and a nice fire. This led into an amazing sunrise in the morning.
That morning we met the brand new campground hosts who were super nice and full of info for us since it was our first time out. We then saw the restrooms that were next to us had not only flushable toilets, but showers. They were super clean and tidy. Needless to say we had a great time even in some colder evening temps.
Things I’d recommend brining or doing : A boat - even if it’s an inflatable one but you have to get on the water.
Walking shoes - there are tons of walking and hiking trails nearby
Lunch or dinner at Dillons on the Bayou - this is an awesome full restaurant and bar on the other side of the lake but it is a definitely must do when you’re here.
