“Great times!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We just camped at Wind Creek this past week and absolutely loved it. Everything was beautiful and so relaxing. We also took in a little school shopping as Alex City was only about 6 miles away. The only downside is our fault, but we will be purchasing bicycles for our next adventure...LOL. We will definitely be going again in the near future. WE LOVED IT !!! :)

“Fun on the Water!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We camped in our motor home at a scenic spot on this beautiful lake. Campsite rental is reasonably priced. Although most of the camp sites are somewhat small, we visited the park the week after a holiday when the park was not very crowded so we were able to get a larger spot with a large buffer between us and the site to our left. My in-laws were on the adjacent site on our right. They brought their bass boat and ski boat so we had a great time on the water. The park features rentals of boats of various sizes, including pontoon boats, for those who want to enjoy the water but don't have a boat of their own. A boater’s license is not required for boat renters. The fishing is good on the lake. My nephew caught several nice sized bass. For those without a fishing boat there is a fishing pier that can be used. The water is relatively clean for a lake, but I chose not to swim. If you do plan to get in the water be sure to wear some sort of water shoe because the bottom was very rough and jagged at our site. My wife and I brought our bikes and did a little bit of cycling. There are paved roads that are safe to ride on if you keep your eye out for larger vehicles. The park has a nice, clean, air conditioned bathhouse. The other bathhouses are clean, but not air conditioned. Overall we had a lot of fun and will definitely come back.

“Lazy employees and rough crowd”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Stayed there last night and concur with previous reviewers comments that it's packed with red necks fighting. One hour after we set up our camper a fight broke out with two guys yelling and a female screaming so long and loud we were concerned she had been seriously injured. Then came the security car with lights flashing, this took up much of the evening. The slothful and inept boys at the check in station went out of there way to keep from doing their job. It's obvious none of them are familiar with the campsites nor the layout of the ground so they keep their rear planted at the desk and send folks aimlessly looking for their camp site. These bozos marked the marina boat launch icons on the huge park map displayed on the check in building with "boat lunch".

“Wind Creek Fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We enjoy fishing off the Wind Creek Park fishing pier. We usually catch at least a few fish and if we have a bad day of fishing we still enjoy the natural surrounding. The birds and turtles and nature in general are beautiful from any location at the park.
