“Great time for anyone wanting to jump in a big pool of sewage”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I actually used to live in the area and as a child I used to swim in the lake however over the years the lake has been nothing more than a dumping ground for people disposing of drug waste, odd and dangerous species of fish, and chemicals not to mention sewage. It is one of the worse lakes I have ever been to. I would never allow my children to put a toe in the water more less jump in. Although the water is pretty from a distant don't be fooled enough to get in the water. The park area is nice and the camp area is very family oriented however it is usually very busy in the summer and most of the shelters are rented months in advance so get there early if you plan on using one of the available not rented ones.

“Holidays weekend are really crowded here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

We stayed Memorial Day Weekend in a pop- up. It was very crowded and the park was not enforcing the two car limit per site. Overall a friendly park with clean bath houses. Park staff was very nice.

“Very peaceful and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Whenever my family and I came into Greenwood to visit family for the weekend, one of the main attractions we wanted to visit was the lake. The day trip was well worth it as the weather was absolutely wonderful as we rented out a small motor boat and fished for a little bit on the lake. By looking around, it seemed like there were some nice places to camp out as well some picnic area. A great place to visit when you are in town
