This campground is very nice located 18 miles southwest of Albany with 121 sites located in three loops. No services but many of the campsites are a good size located in a forest with a few having lake views. The bottom loops seem to be quieter than the beach loop sites 1 -52. Our site was a good size located in the beach loop with a picnic table and a huge fire pit. Nice site. Since we came in on Memorial Day and it seemed to have been full for the weekend there was a long line for the dump station and a lot of campers in the park. The beach is not always open during the week. The restrooms were clean considering this was Memorial Weekend. The park has the beach, nature center, basketball court, horseshoe pit , playground, volleyball and picnic sites. The check-in girl was very nice especially since she was overwhelmed with all the campers trying to leave, day trippers coming in for the beach and campers looking for sites. The problem at this state park is that it is full on weekends and not many during the week but then they let a number of people or groups come for the day. There are a number of picnic tables for these groups or families to use but some try to come in the beach loop and use the campsites. I will say the workers did patrol frequently and very nicely tried to move some of these groups out. There is a shortage of parking for the number that they allow in so the beach loop had cars parked along the campsite road which can cause a problem. We would have had a problem getting our RV out of our site. Many of the groups were loud and they are allowed to stay to 10 at night. I know this was Memorial Day, so I have to make an exception but my rating of the beauty of the park, facilities, sites, and staff would have been a 8 with no services. Since they let to many people in for the daily beach pass with not enough parking, I will rate the park lower. Monday night there were only a few of us in the park overnight. We camped at Thacher State Park, Thompson's Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife and I took our trailer here for our very first maiden trip. The sites were flat, clean and nicely wooded. This park is a nice family park that has a nice beach area and boat launch. We camped at Thacher State Park, Thompson's Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The site had a fire ring and picnic table. Nice shade trees. We requested lakeside, and received a lakeside spot, but a fence was up. So you could not reach the water from our campsite. We had a very nice time. Would go again. We camped at Thacher State Park, Thompson's Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
