Some of the camp loops are on a bluff while other loops are close the water's edge. All of the interior roads are on asphalt and are hilly. The sites are on crushed asphalt and rocks. Due to the terrain, some sites sloop more than others. The electrical box consists of 50/30/15 amp electrical service. The voltage was strong - hovering around 122 volts. This was surprising since it was very hot and all of the rigs were using AC.

Both the utility box and water spigot was located at the back of the site. All sites were back-in except for one site. All of the sites can accommodate a large rig and there was an area within the site to park a boat. All sites have a fire ring, BBQ stand and a picnic table. The one dump station is located at the entrance of the park. Fresh water is also available there.

The bathroom and showers were clean but not very appealing. The park also has a boat launch, swim, and a number of playground areas.

Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good. The gates to the park are closed from 10 PM until 6 AM. It was very quiet at night.

We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Other than no cable or WIFI, this park is just about perfect - only about 25 spaces all basically with a view of beautiful Tuttle Creek reservoir. All (except one) are back-in spaces but there's generally enough room to maneuver OK. Electric at 50 Amps and water supply is fine. Each space has a nice aluminum picnic table in the space and the spaces are generally fairly flat so leveling isn't too bad. There is only one dump station and it's at the top of the hill (whereas all the spaces are down the hill close to the water) - not a problem but you should be aware of it. The onsite staff are very friendly and try to be helpful. We got our 50% discount from using our federal parks "senior pass" - quite a bargain for a good park. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice paved roads with lots of room to manuver. Below the dam at Tuttle Creek. Very close to Manhattan. Green grass everywhere. Standing water here and there because of the rains lately. during country music festival, therefore really crowded. lots of big trees. During June, lots of cotton off of cottonwood trees(has a tendency to plug up your a/c) We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a federal campground so it has all of the amenities normally offered by such. The park is clean and many (most) sites have a beautiful view of the lake. We stay here when visiting our daughter and family in Manhattan and it serves as a great home base. If it had full hook-ups we would stay longer, but not complaining. We prefer this over the state park on the other side of the dam hands down. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tuttle Creek COE has 4 RV sites available without reservations. When we arrived Wednesday afternoon, all 4 sites were available. Sites 12 and 22 are level enough to set the motor-home jacks without the wheels being off the ground. The 50 amp service is excellent. The water pressure is excellent. No low hanging branches, and paved roads. All sites available for reservation, were already reserved for the weekend. Arrive early in the week if without reservations. AT&T worked adequately for voice calls with one bar. However, A Wilson Amplifier was needed amplify the signal for using the hotspot internet connection with an HTC One, which works great.

The views from all sites of the lake are very nice. Deer in the afternoon, so watch driving. They are somewhat tame, and may not move out of the road when approached. The nightly rate is with the Access Pass. This is a great park, within 5 miles of Manhattan, and Super Walmart. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Motorhome.

Access to boating, swimming, with marked off beach area. Typical Corps of Engineers campground. Rest rooms and showers available. Easy access with our 37 ft Meridian. All sites are back-in except for 2 that I seen. We always stay here when visiting family in the area, only problem is they close the gate at 10:00 PM if you forget to be back by curfew you can't get in until 6:00 AM, you can leave during closed hours for emergency or if you have to be somewhere early but through an anti backup gate (spikes). Very nice view of lake. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Motorhome.

This is your typical, excellent COE campground. There are two campground sections: with and without utilities (electric and water). We were on the Lake Shore loop with utilities. Our site was very long and there was even an additional spot for parking the car (which wasn't needed). The sites do slope towards the lake a bit but we were able to get reasonably level with our jacks. Contrary to a previous post, the roads are paved but the sites are gravel. The volunteers who checked us in were efficient and friendly. There were several nice playgrounds if you happen to bring kids. The rate cited is with the Federal Senior discount pass. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Motorhome.

This park is located above the damn on the main lake. The terrain is a bit hilly but the sites are level with decent spacing. We stayed in site 16, gave a great view of the lake and lots of common area. Lake access was poor to to high water, the beach was flooded and it had a foul smell. Showers and bathrooms were clean and roomy, there are outhouses spread out about the campground. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a typical COE campground. The sites are paved, but some along the lake are not too level. We camped at Tuttle Creek Cove COE in a Motorhome.
