The lake is clear, shallow and warm for a good distance. There are a lot of bugs though.
We stayed in slot 12 and it had a beautiful view of the lake. We were close to the sand and beach and enjoyed building sand castles, fishing and taking our small raft on the lake. There was not a lot of shade, although every slot has a built in cover which was nice. There was a skunk at our tent one night but other than that we didn’t see any rodents or animals. There is a trail right off slot 12 for hiking or biking. Watch out for the cactus if you go off the trail.
There was a lot of space to be spread out from others. The beach is so large and it’s easy to camp out. The sand is soft and fun for the kids to build sand castles. We also enjoyed the small waves while on the beach.
I love that there are shady areas along the hikes. So many different trails to follow and rocks to climb. Great for grade school children to run around. The camp sites are spread out so there can be a little more privacy. There is not a creek or water.
The sand near the lake was fun to play in for my family building sand castles and also relaxing. We hiked around the lake and found the cliff diving and fishing coves. I like that there are more private areas if you look. We also did the dune buggy tour ride and I am so glad we did! The water was a little chilly in May but we went out to our knees. We both got swimmers itch so beware. I let the employees know a few days after. Just remember to shower right after getting into the water. There are showers right near the lake. It was a beautiful view.
The lake is right up the road and a great place to swim and fish. There is a sliding rock for kids to climb and play on near the camp grounds. So many bike and walking trails. I love the creek that runs along the camp ground. We caught a lot of fish there. It is loud in the evenings with the highway that runs near the camp but the camp host are always friendly and a great place for kids so the noise didn’t bother me as much.
The campgrounds were very open with not many trees but a great view of the lake. We saw fox that came right up to our tent and lots of bison close by. Quiet place.
I loved sleeping near the creek and hearing the water at night. The campground was clean and bigger than I expected.
