My wife and I walked some trails that led up to the lake and eventually ended up at the beach! We had a great time, too bad the weather changed on us or we would have stayed longer...

Definitely a vacation destination if you live within easy driving distance of northern Missouri. Clean, level, paved sites. (Some sites are huge!). Beautiful wooded setting on large lake. (Recycling... More

A very nice family oriented lake. Has a good size swimming area and shallow enough for little ones to go out fairly far without concern. Very nice showers / restrooms, clean and well kept! Employee's and Host were very nice, and very good with the kids. I would return to this lake, we had a lot of fun there! Macon... More

They do have a place to rinse the sand off near the bathrooms. The beach area is not that crowded, which is nice. They also have picnic... More

Great place to spend the day! Only one way in & one way out, which made it hard to turn around. Loved the look-out stop.
