We go out there at least once every couple of weeks & it is amazing. Eat at the Oasis & you can put your boat in there. There multiple launch sites around the lake. 2 sand beaches & lots of room to tube or ski.

We love camping at Joe Pool Lake. It is a quick and easy getaway for the weekend and still close to home. Staff is friendly and the park is nice and clean.

I'm not sure how the boaters are doing, but bank fishing has been terrible for the last several years.

For a family of four with young children, it was a quiet spring getaway. It was clean, well maintained with tons of playground equipment and shade! It was a lovely place for a lovely day and I'd recommend it!

I live close to Joe Pool Lake and get to the lake on a limited basis. I have fished, skied, and eaten at Joe Pool and have been somewhat satisfied with each. The Oasis is at the marina and has "okay" food and good drinks....More
