The trees around the camp sites are nice but we will never go back. The boat ramp is anything but friendly and the area is infested with gnats! They also have no showers there and the fee you pay per day pass is outrageous!

This lake is so fun! We love the large cottonwood trees that provide good shade, the sandy beach, and the large lake to jet ski in and explore!

We had a great time camping and boating. The lake is very large, hardly anyone was out on the lake (or maybe it just felt that way because it's sooo large!) We "dry camped" in our RV since we didn;t have a site with hook-ups...More

Hard to believe we've lived here for over 8 years and are just now finding this gem! It's a very large lake that cannot be appreciated by just what is seen from I25. Lots of really great campsites and pricing is reasonable (particularly with a...More

the reservoir has sandy beaches, rocky beaches, and muddy beaches, but the water is fairly clean and the surrounding shore is pretty. Seems to be good marina service (we swam, but our friends liked the service for their sail boat.)

The campground was very busy (weekend before eclipse) but we had a great spot on Sandy Beach where we were able to be hidden by most of the crowds. The dogs barking were the most annoying of all, but that is lousy owners that left...More

To say that Glendo State Park did a terrible Solar Eclipse planning is understating it! The facility is very nice and beautiful, but does it justify the 5hr traffic jam (just to get out of the park!) after the solar eclipse event makes it worth...More

Be aware that water levels are pretty low in the reservoir, so your ability to swim will really depend on where you go. We checked out Sandy Beach two days in a row and were not disappointed. Lovely water temperature, great sand, and a gorgeous...More

Arrived late in evening (6:00 PM) during the week but wanted to check out the lake. Went down to Sagebrush boat ramp and noticed the boat ramp was approximately 150 feet long. I'm assuming this was a very dry year for the lake. Beautiful lake...More

Oh sorry, I just saw this. We actually don't every camp on that side of the lake. We are always by Sandy Beach and Broken Arrow campgrounds. Just curious though, how was it?

From what I understand the camping if full, but you could probably park on the side of the road and watch. Glendo is a big lake.
