Nice campground, shady and clean. Fairly small but worked well for us to stay 2 nights while visiting the area for a family event. The site I chose was supposed to be adjacent to water supply, but required 75' of hose to reach it... and was not full-time water connection, just temporary spigot to fill tank. There is dock access from one corner of the campground loop, and we carried our kayak down to put it in the lake. The park roads back to campground are a little confusing... follow text signs to "Shady Rest" as another reviewer mentioned, as there is no other signage with RV logos or indicators. We reached some dead ends and I got unplanned practice backing our 35' trailer, before figuring out which way we needed to go. We camped at Washington County State Recreational Area in a Travel Trailer.

What a wonderful, quiet campground! Not too far from I-64, this little place is a gem. We had no reservations, called the site, left a message and they called back. Arrived on a Saturday and had no problem getting a site. If you want a quiet place to rest for a while or just a quick stop over, we highly recommend this location. Once in the recreation area follow the signs to Shady Rest Campground. We are full time RV'ers. We were at a 50 amp site but one leg was low voltage so we switched to 30 amp. We camped at Washington County State Recreational Area in a Fifth Wheel.

I camped with my parents and my daughter for a weekend in the fall 2016. The lake was great and provided beautiful views. My daughter loved to fish from the docks. I would highly recommend. We camped at Washington County State Recreational Area in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park, and good campground. We have camped and fished here many times, and we always have an enjoyable time. Campground hosts are usually very nice and cooperative. Showers and restrooms are clean and well maintained. Sites are spacious, and mostly very shady. Fire rings, BBQ grills, picnic tables at each site. Water is available at several locations throughout the campground, and at the dump station. Nice lake, boat docks, and store with the essentials, plus fishing bait, ice, snacks, etc. Also have decent archery range. We camped at Washington County State Recreational Area in a Travel Trailer.
