Our rate is the America the Beautiful pass rate. This place is gorgeous, peaceful, and very clean. The site was asphalt and fairly level. We had a large picnic table area overlooking the lake. They have some double sites (double cost) if you're traveling with someone. The town of Jasper is about 15 min. or so away for shopping/restaurants. We had no Verizon cell service, but our Verizon hotspot worked fine for internet. We could, however, get cell service if we went to the entrance to the park. If they had sewer hookups, I'd give it a 10. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Motorhome.

Rate is America the Beautiful Senior Pass. CG is on a hill by a lake. Beautiful area. Very welcoming staff. It's about 10-12 miles off the main highway. Very quiet. Power and water good. Roads good. Sites level or level-able. A 9 rather than 10 because of no sewer. Also hard to get cell service. Didn't try over the air TV. We would definitely stop here again.

Nice natural surroundings and hiking paths. There are some very nice sites on the lake. We stayed in the loop at the top of the hill in the woods. Very few people were there due to the cool weather I presume. Nice and quiet. We have been in this campground before on a summer week-end and it is covered up. I would recommend a Monday through Friday stay to avoid the crowds. If you love nature and peace & quiet, you will love this campground in the off season. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

There is an older but very rude woman that works here. The bathrooms are very dirty. The grass needed to be cut. Not kept up very well. The water looked polluted and there was garbage floating in the swim area. The place was very nasty and I would not ask anyone to come here on vacation. The garbage cans were full and not maintained much at all. The price was not worth the use of this park. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Tent Trailer.

The sites in the lower circles near the lake were extremely crowded and noisy. Lots of children playing in the streets. The upper circles were quiet with very little traffic. This is a nice facility with extremely nice but limited staff. More attention should be given to litter control and to site maintenance. Once parked, we had to cut branches away from the sides and on top of the RV on our site and the site of our friends. We saw several staff members riding golf carts with tools but never once saw anyone using those tools. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Motorhome.

We were happy with our stay but a little disappointed given all the high rankings on this website. We found the park to be comfortable with nice site separation and privacy. he campground is about 17 miles from the nearest town so it was very quiet. Our site was fairly level with a paved pad. The reasons for our disappointment were: The bathrooms were a little old with no hand soap at the sinks; the toilet paper was left empty, firewood was overpriced at $5 a bundle considering the small amount of tiny logs, the noise policy was not enforced - my neighbor was playing a boom box very loudly for hours on end and didn't stop until I asked them personally. A host was nearby but didn't say anything. There are a few hiking trails, but they have obviously not been maintained in a while; trees had fallen and markings were missing. The bike trail was paved but clearly needs fresh pavement because there were pot holes all over the place. The water level on the lake was so low that the beach didn't exist. The water had retreated so far into the middle of the lake that the beach was a big mud pit. Locals told us that the water is 30 feet low due to a lack of rainfall. If you choose to stay here, know that this is a nice park; we just didn't find it to be as spectacular as others have reviewed it. Make sure that you choose the correct loop. Our loop, the Fawn loop was pretty peaceful (after the radio was shut down) as was the Bear loop. The other two loops at the water were very loud with large groups of campers partying late into the night. Looked fun, but not so fun if you're not part of the group and just want some peace and quiet. We would probably stay here again if our travels take us to this part of the country, but we have stayed at others places that we feel where better.

This is an exceptional park. Well shaded sites. Level concrete pads. The site is filled with decorate pea gravel which helps keep down the amount of dirt being tracked into the camper. Very nice bike trails and swimming area. Clean bath houses. The only reason I do not give it a 10 is because only the host sites have sewer, however the friendly staff offered us a host site so we would have sewer but it was a bit smaller and not right on the water. This park is at the top of our list for parks near our home. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Simply fantastic! This campground, located in US Forest Service Recreation Area at Lake Smith has to be one of their crown jewels! Spacious campsites, very well shaded, with fresh gravel, paved camper pads, grills and fire rings. We were in a loop that did not have waterfront access, but since we were just overnighting on our way out west, we didn't mind. Other campground loops had sites that were on the water, and they were very nicely maintained and spacious. This campground is worthy of being a destination, and we are making plans to return! The office staff are very friendly and have lots of useful information. I chose my site online, and having never been there, just guessed about what might be a good site. Well, there isn't a bad site in the campground, but the ranger suggested I might like a different site even better, and she was so right - just perfect. Highly recommended campground!

In regard to the actual campsite, this is no doubt one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at (even better than Fort Wilderness at Disney!). The individual campsites offer a great variety of shade, privacy, and location. Security was outstanding and the cleanliness of the grounds was impressive. The trails and roads were in wonderful condition and very useful. The layout and condition of the roads/trails make using bicyles enjoyable and easy. We only have two complaints/warnings: although we were warned by the host about the "activity level" of the loop we were staying in, we wish we had been told that "loud and intrusive music" is considered "activity". Second, the bathrooms/showers for the loop we stayed in were always filthy (paper on floor, mud in showers, unclean toilets, dirty countertop, cig butts everywhere)! I checked out a bathroom/shower for another loop and it was very clean. I would assume the bathroom/showers for the loop we were in stayed dirty due to the amount of usage of a full loop (many children and teens). Next time I will stay in a loop farther from the water and use a clean bathroom/shower. We will return to this campground and I highly recommend it, but we will choose our site more carefully.

The sites are typical Forest Service with ample space and shade. There a 4 loops, 2 are directly on Smith Lake. They are very popular, crowded and busy. The 3rd loop is quieter, has limited view of lake but good access to bike trail. The 4th loop is up on a hill, quiet with no view lake. There is a very nice paved flat 1.5 mile bike trail along the shore from the sites to the beach with lots of places for wading/fishing. There are 2-3 miles of hiking trails that pass a couple of interesting rock shelters. There is a large playground on the water by the 2nd loop. The beach is very nice big lagoon with idealic picnic tables along the shore. The beach is about 2 miles via road from the site or 1 mile on the bike trail. Bring your food, there are no stores or restaurants for 11+ miles. Wal Mart and strip malls are in Jaspter about 13 miles away. Staff very friendly.

We live close to this campground and sometimes grab a short weekend here when possible. This park is always very clean and well maintained. The perfect place to get away from it all for a while. Campground is beside Smith Lake, which offers many opportunities for fishing, boating, etc. There is a beach and swimming area on the property. Staff members have always been friendly and helpful.

Absolutely beautiful place to camp. Large spacey lots, with shade around them, paved
pads. Bike trails, hiking trails, playground, most lakefront lots have access trail to lake for docking of boat. Cleanest restrooms I've seen, large clean
showers. Very friendly and helpful staff. Also has adequate dump stations. Golden Age Passport gets nice discount. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. The sites are private and there is a big swimming area nearby with access via a very pretty paved bike/walking trail. I do not recall if full hook-ups are available. However, I do know that we used the clean showers many times - so some of the sites near the water do not have full hook-ups. The playground near the water is very nice. While the sites at the top of the hill do not have easy access to the water, the scenery is still beautiful. We found a small waterfull in the woods when camping up there. Some of the dirt trails have huge rock shelters that you can walk under. The kids like that. We always consider this campground when planning a trip. If you have a boat, some of the sites are right on the lake. We have camped here at least four times.

One of the finest and most beautiful campgrounds I've been in. Has a beautiful lake for boating and fishing. Very nice and clean restrooms and showers. Very safe. Must have a code to get into the campground to operate the gate. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a camper.
