It is amazing that places like this are available for free. No hookups, but the view of the lake / dam was great. Picnic tables, elevated grills, sun shelters were present at each site. Sites were pretty much wherever you could fit your rig in. Larger rigs have limited availability, but there were two or three fifth wheels there. We put our 30' bumper pull in on a cliff-side site. It's about a 15 minute drive from Fritch, so get your necessities before heading to the campground. We stayed one night here after visiting the nearby (~30 min) Flint quarries nat'l park. We camped at Lake Meredith National Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed in the Sanford-Yake Campground. It's pretty hard to argue with free. There is no charge, no electricity, no sewer and no water. I think there is a dump and water at the entrance by the Ranger's Office. The restroom is a bit of a walk from most sites, but reasonably clean. The campground appears to be a combination of both a campground and a picnic ground. There are no clearly designated camping spots. You choose a picnic table and park on the gravel. The campground overlooks Lake Meredith and the dam that forms the lake. There is no screening of any kind between the sites but that wasn't a problem because there was almost nobody there. This wouldn't be a destination for me but is adequate for an overnight stay while passing through the area. The signage directing one from the highway to the campground is extremely poor to nonexistent - have Google maps, or an equivalent, to help guide you in if you haven't been before. We camped at Lake Meredith National Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You turn to the left at the end of the road to go to the campground/picnic ground. You turn to the right to go to the boat launch into the lake.

What a find! We can't believe this campground is free and has such a low usage. There are multiple campgrounds located around the lake - camping is somewhat dispersed, thus there is not an absolute number of sites listed. For additional info, please refer to the website. Some have dump stations with fresh water and flush toilets. Most have covered picnic tables and grills. Most sites are lake-front. However, the shoreline is rugged and at the time we were here, the lake level was down excessively. There are boat ramps for boaters and fishermen. When we were here, there were only a handful of campers and sometimes we were the only campers in our campground. The park is patrolled by National Park rangers. The only negative we had was unpredictable winds. We will definitely camp here again after we reach the 14-day limit. We camped at Lake Meredith National Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
