Love this campground it is so pretty there. The only thing that makes it ugly is the campground host . we walked across his campsite when we were there . He came out of his camper raging and screaming for us to GET OFF HIS PROPERTY He said he owned it and no one was allowed to set foot on it. He definitely has rage issues Appears that he has always verbally abused women . Also did not know you can own a lot in a federal campground. If you can handle a nasty old man the it is a beautiful area Lake has a lot of logs floating on water so you have to avoid them when boating.

Its a beautiful campground very clean and right on the lake. We have a boat at the marina permanently and the fishing is terrific. The lake never has more then a handful of boats on it very quiet. So glad we found this place.

Its a beautiful place, dont get me wrong but the water was nasty and there is no cell service at all. We walked around the whole campground and marina and finally gave up. There was no where that we could find to help with the problems. We read that there were computers you could use? Never found them either. Will not come back.

Nice clean sites and bath houses. beautiful views of the lake from many sites. They have several sites that are walkups, but most are reserved and fill up fast. Easy access off of I-40, and good roads to get you to the campground. Will be going back soon!!
