Quiet and clean

Clean campground. Rutted road is hell towing a trailer, but it's far from the crowds. Expansive views.

It's several miles down a well-graded but washboard-bumpy road. The campground toilets are vault, the water supply is a big tank. The fishing can be good or awful depending on when the lake is stocked. The water is murky, and it can get pretty windy (good for some, unpleasant for others). It can attract a crowd on weekends.

It's pretty crowded when we visit, and not very clean. Have never caught anything here either. I don't think it's worth the drive out, the scenery isn't anything fabulous.

8/7-8/10 We camped in the outer area of the lake it was beautiful. The road is a bit bumpy but the grandkids loved the it, they laughed and enjoyed the ride. There is lots of shade and fire pits. I would recommend anyone there if they want to get away from the city and all the noise.
