First, let me say that my rating is based and slanted due to the time of the year and the weather. Mid '90's, drought conditions, low water levels. That said, very large State Park CG on fair sized reservoir. Spring and mid summer conditions would probably be very different than what we encountered. Lake level was very low, the water was green and stunk. Many mosquitoes, and midges. Vent fans got coated with dead bugs in evening, swarms everywhere. Site was shady, and protected from wind. Water spigots are few, and far apart. Good dump station access and facilities. A fair distance from freeway, so wouldn't recommend for an overnight like we did. $ rate includes Reserve America's rip-off reservation fees!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is our third year visiting here. This is a great park for water activities! Campground is beginning to show it's age and needs to have some money invested in it. There is a wide variety of sites, so pick carefully! Most sites are spacious, but some are better than others. All sites have 20,30,50 amp service, picnic table and fire ring. Water spigots are scattered throughout the area. Minimal shade, and it can get very hot in the summer! Mosquitos are a serious problem here, so bring spray and tiki torches! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

It was the 4th of July weekend and the park was completely full! Although it was busy, the sites we had (#84, #85) were quiet and peaceful. There is a wide variety of sites to choose from, so make your selection carefully. Some sites are widely spaced but others are very close to your neighbor. There are numerous trees in the southern campgrounds, but not as many north of the marina. The State Park website allows you to look at pictures of your campsite before you reserve, a neat feature! The weather was hot, but manageable as most people were involved in water sport activities. The lake can get busy during the day, so best to start early. Storms can come up quickly in this part of the plains, so keep an eye on the sky and an ear to the weather radio. Heavy rain does make this place a bit sloppy, but the soil is sandy and dries out pretty fast. No Wi-Fi is available and we could not get any TV stations at our site. Cell phone service is spotty, but we had fair service with AT&T. Hookups were electric only. Bathroom are hit and miss. The bathhouses only have one shower stall except for the Sandpiper campground north of the marina. These were newer and had 4 stalls and in much better condition. Water pressure was good and hot. Bring bug spray, lots of it! Mosquito's are ravenous! The Park Rangers patrol the area well and keep things under control. The marina has a fairly well stocked store. All in all, a fun place! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
