Reviewed April 1, 2013

I grew up fishing and camping at Dixon..and after all these years it's still a great place to go! The camping is great and convienient to town. Really feels like you are "far away." The hiking is awesome and with the view you can't miss a great family adventure!

This lake is a nice size, however unless you go out to fish or have a picnic., there is not much to do. Too many people visit this place and you have to pay a small fee to get in. There are other nice lakes in the area.

We drove to a back shore area which was fairly isolated on a cool, late afternoon. We enjoyed the solitude and quiet walk along the shore. There were plenty of ducks, coots, and a few other water birds across the lake too far to distinguish. Prior rain had left a number of muddy areas to work around. Would love to go back and sit on the benches on the small dock and let the birds entertain.

Great place to take the kids. Lots of room for a family picnic, throwing a pole in off the dock, feeding the ducks, short hikes or just blowing bubbles! Nothing like being with family in the out of doors under the shade of an old oak tree enjoying the day.

We camped here overnight and had a great time. We fished all the next day and although we caught nothing we were happy we did it. Only Downside = charcoal only campfires strictly enforced. Other then that a great place to explore, camp, fish, play, picnic, and relax with friends and/or family. Day fee for parking, camping fees are worth the free dump station for motorhomes in our opinion.
