Excellent little campground! Most sites have at minimum a large deck, and some even have large protected decks including full roof over the deck and camper/RV. Full hookups available, although check the length of your wires/hoses as they can be an extra 5-15 feet away compared to other campgrounds we have stayed. Work is still being done on the campground and it looks like they may be expanding. Currently they are redoing much of the electrical but we never experienced any outages or spikes. It appears that dish network TV is available, but I am not sure about wireless, phone or modem hookups. The owners/hosts are great people, VERY kind, helpful and go above and beyond. Boat ramp close by and there is a recommended $2 boat launch fee which is definitely well worth the graciousness they provide. Excellent fishing most of the year although this year has been tough with the extended and colder than usual winter.

Great little campground. We visit here to go fishing quite a bit and occasionally camping (if we can find a spot). Not much extra to do except fishing and hiking. No playground for the kids. The biggest problem is availability. From March to November it is very difficult as local people place a tent or something else to reserve the spot, sometimes for several days or all week just to camp one or two nights that weekend. There are no reservations so unless you know someone that can go up there to "reserve" a spot, you will be out of luck 9 months out of the year. The camp host refuses to do anything about it most of the time. The mens showers had one of 2 stalls broken for over a month, I am not sure if it is fixed here several months later. The lack of availability and playground are big strikes against an otherwise great campground.

Great little campground. There are a few long term residents which reduces the number of available spots so be sure to call and reserve ahead of time. Excellent fishing on the small lake with two ramps available. There are 21 sites, some gravel some sand. No playground or swingset of any kind.

PROS: all sites are mostly shaded all day, mostly level sites (17-20 may be a bit unlevel as they are on a hill close to the lake), a single cabin available close to the lake, very friendly host/hostess and staff, restrooms and showers stayed very clean even on a holiday weekend, plenty of spots to fish, around one-third of the sites are water front, the rest are within short walking distance to the dock or other water front fishing spots, small boat launch. CONS: only a single swing for the kids at the campground, no real playground close by, although there is a larger playground a short drive away in the "public" portion of the park, for people wanting to watch satellite TV I suspect it would be tough to get a signal, the roads are a bit bumpy but I see that as a deterrent for speeders so I did not mind even with a pop up trailer, check-in/registration is a bit confusing, you stop at the front gate and they direct you to the campground where you pull into your site and stop at the small office building to check in. Sometimes the internet connection or computer acts up so they may not get you checked in right away or even verify your reservation. I would not suggest this campground for people with large/long trailer RVs (28' or longer), or the longer/larger RVs as the roads are narrow and very tough to pull into many spots. Over all I had to deduct one point for the playground but otherwise this campground is excellent!

We have stayed here before and always come back when possible. They keep the campground very clean, the restrooms and showers are clean and the staff is always friendly and helpful. There are two parts to the park, you need to drive or short hike to get to the boat ramp and playground. They also have canoes available for 2 hour, half day or full day rental. Very close to grocery store, golf course and within reasonable driving distance to the beach on the gulf. There is shoreline saltwater fishing available or even a small freshwater pond where I caught a few bluegill. Only negative is the small paved roads are a tight fit where some RVs, parked vehicles and trees are close to the road.
