There are several campgrounds within the park so make sure you get the right one. We camped in the West Side Campground of the Horseshoe Lake Conservation Area, which is right on the lake itself. The East Side Campground was closed. Hunting season was in full swing and all the other campers were serious male hunters in all male hunting bands. Polite and friendly but I felt kind of out of place as a female. We heard a lot of shooting nearby so we went around with our orange and yellow raincoats on. We went for a canoe trip in the cypress swamp from the dock across the road from our site. Very nice place if you would like to canoe in a cypress swamp and we enjoyed that. However the water tap didn't work and when we tried to dump, the dump site was plugged and we had to contend with a mess. Showers were closed. For an overnight it was a lovely scenic park but don't expect the water and sewer to work. The electricity was fine. Long narrow roads in and out where you can't turn around but the sites are huge once you are off the roadway into the campground. Not worth the $20 we were charged, in spite of he lovely canoe trip. We camped at Horseshoe Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Found this park while traveling down I-57 South. Needed a place for the night. Park off the beaten path, and quiet. Fire pits in poor shape, but the view of the lake is very pretty. Not a class A park, but we liked it so much we stayed 2 nights. We camped at Horseshoe Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
