We went camping in our travel trailer for the first time and it was a great experience! We brought our 2 shepherd dog and 2 year old. The place was very peaceful and relaxing. Everyone was friendly and nice. Already booked our next trip

Had a great time with my family here, clean Beach side decent facilities plenty of places to set up for food, and want to crowded. I got 5 people in for the nearly price of $7 per car, so it's definitely worth it for a cheap trip for the family!

It seems like the quality of the park depends on where you camp. We stayed in poplar point twice, one with an RV, and once tent camping in the first-come-first-serve spots. The reserved spots were much nicer. Yes, I know there is a difference between an RV site and a tent site, but the bathrooms and shower areas were better away from the section we stayed in to rent camp (section E). So I would recommend going only if you reserve ahead. Also, your neighbors in the non-reservation area are a little more interesting, to say the least. One group was out in the water in front of the sites running their jet ski wide open at 715 in the morning.

We love to go camping, fishing and even using the recreation center. We haven't had any luck on fishing. Last time we went camping our camp site flooded but it was still fun and we made memories that day trying to dig a canal so the water would drain and our tent wouldnt flood.

Clean beach, with shade and restrooms close by. Easy parking. And of course the lake is beautiful and the water is easy to adjust to.

Great experience on the lake. Some choppy waves in the main body for the boat, otherwise, fun time. Channels, or fingers of the lake are best for boaters. Gets deepest about 49 feet.
