We went on a weekday, before the end of the school holidays and it was empty - no one there. Drove right up the little promontory, down to the pier decking and basked in the sun. Perfectly peaceful and plain gorgeous views over the lake. Only really came up as we wanted to see what was there so to speak but very glad for the experience. I guess the US has a huge reservoir of scenes like this but coming from the UK this was something special. An unexpected highlight of our trip.

Somebody who gets paid to manage this place should grab a trash bag and hit the trail (or hit the bricks and find a new gig)! Nice park but unforgivable site conditions with bottles and cans, butts and paper plates piled in and around the picnic table area of many sites. Nice lake. No swimming?? Fishing pictures looked good. We camped there in a 40' RV and had good space and 50 amps on some sites. Dump station. 18 bucks per night. We left a detailed note in the Honor Box (since we came in after hours and left early) with our complaint (and phone). No response. Says alot.

Nice lake, nice campgrounds, but if you ban swimming at a lake, why bother camping? I mean, whenever we camp we swim, and this is Mississippi where it's hotter than Hades, yet they banned swimming because, they said there were too many people getting drunk and drowning. Really? How stupid is that? We've traveled all over America and this is the first time we've ever encountered something like this; we are all adults, let us make our own choices.
