This is one of the best cared for COE parks ever. They only recycle aluminum cans here; the Feds need to set a better example for RV parks. The electric and water hookups were spot on. Our space was fairly level. The town of Perry is close for shopping. We had great views from our rig of the lake. We would stay here in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We tried to stay here, however the COE was closing the park for paving. Also wanted to give campers a "heads-up" on locating the gate. It is not your typical entrance to a COE parks. You need to enter at the Pennisula Campground. Wish someone would have told us! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our $9 rate reflects the Federal Senior Pass rate. Many of the sites were under water when we were here but we had a lovely spot all to ourselves in the Whippoorwill section. It was very hot and there is limited shade. As mentioned, the restroom shower buildings are not air-conditioned so can be a bit unpleasant. There is a Wal Mart Supercenter a short distance away in Lawrence. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campsites are nice, especially if you can get a shaded spot. The bathrooms aren't great because they aren't air conditioned, so the mayflies love them! We like this campsite much better than the State Park facilities at Lake Perry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a bit of a tongue in cheek review because I did not actually stay at the campground. After spending 2+ hours circling the lake because of the bridge out we finally found the campground. It took three locals giving directions to find it. It is poorly signed. Unfortunately when we finally did find it, it was closed for the season. I had spent time on the Corp of Engineer site, including their blog. No mention of a closing for the season. There has been flood damage, the boat landing was nearly repaired and very serviceable. It was deserted for the entire time we were there. It made for a very comfortable overnight, thus the "special price". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is your typical COE park. Lots of space between sites. Some sites are smaller than others. We have a 45-footer and it worked for us. If entering this park from the south, make sure the bridge is open. If not you need to enter from the North. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
