Nice Corps park, RV sites totally new, level laterally but not necessarily level on the backin. Each site has a metal picnic table and metal roof. Lots of space between sites. Only some sites have shade. Look closely at Recreation.gov when selecting. Cranes Mill Park is primarily a meadow with a few forested pockets. There are several fishing points, and a boatramp, but it was closed due to the drought and low water levels. I am not so sure you could call the campsites "waterfront" because of the height of grass and cacti and distance from the weedy shoreline. Roadways in the park were great for short bicycle rides. Outside the park, the road was hilly, narrow. Neighborhood outside the gate appeared to be downscale, but guard gate apparently limits entry by those who might otherwise cruise through. Windy, and that made even summer evenings pleasant. The park has some not so stellar design problems. If the campground loop circulated counterclockwise, back in sites would have allowed the awning side of campers to face the water. The design on the ground causes service sides to face water. The dump station is on an elevated curb platform, so if the RV dump valves are low, you will need to make water run uphill and into a non standard hole. Frustrating. Finally, the exit out of the RV area has a turn with a culvert very close to the turning radius. Markers warn drivers, apparently a few drivers have cut their campers into the ditch. Nevertheless, we would definitely camp here again. Just bring your sunscreen! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice with some beautiful sunsets across the Lake. All office personnel nice. COE grounds contractors could do a better job. One shower non-op in the men's restroom. Men and women showers don't drain well due to construction of the facilities. Rates will increase Apr 1st. $12 with Golden Age Pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here almost 7 weeks as they do allow extended stay if the campground is not full. The $12 reflects the cost with the Senior Pass for National Parks. We loved it here and would have stayed longer, but it was an unusually cold this time of year so we chose to leave early and head farther south into Texas. We had site #30 and the deer walked through every morning and evening and never get tired of seeing them. Park is very quiet and has lovely views of the lake. Sites are large, paved, and nice metal picnic table with sun shelter. We were told this park was upgraded in 2010. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice Corps park. Rate is with "Geezer" card. Good hiking and biking. Verizon cell works good and satellite should be available in most sites. Some trees. Would rate higher if it had sewer. Good dump station. Sites paved and sort of level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
