A bit rainy and soggy for the Memorial Day Weekend, but still a fun place! The newer showerhouse in the Sandpiper campground is better than the one in Pelican, but still not bad. Sites were fairly level and electric worked good. The lake is a popular place for watersports and when the sun came out the roads dried up nicely and everyone hit the beach. Lake was VERY full, so not much beach area to use. Be aware that storms can come up quickly in this area! We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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 at Jackson Lake State Park 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 at Jackson Lake State Park 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 at Jackson Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here with a group from work and had a great time! Large variety of sites from no shade to full shade. The photos on the parks website are a bit misleading. There is actually MORE shaded sites that what the pictures show! Roads are gravel with natural vegetation. Our site, #001, was unlevel, but easily fixed with my leggo blocks. All sites had a table and fire ring. I would suggest the waterfront sites, but these go the fastest! Bathrooms were fair, but good shower pressure and warm water. The lake had a large amount of green algae, but was warm and calm. Lots of water sports on the lake and it can get busy! We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Jackson Lake is a great state park for fishing and water sports. We went here for the 4th of July weekend to do some jet skiing. The site has a lot of various sites (some with electric and some "primitive"). Sewer dump is at the park entrance. There are various water faucets around the park where you can fill up your water tank before you settle into your spot. The marina is fairly well stocked with food/goods. Gas was about $.40-$.50 higher per gallon compared to the city. My Verizon Wireless card did work although signal was very low. We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
