Campground Description

The park caters primarily to campers, anglers and recreational boaters. There are several picnic sites overlooking the reservoir for day users. The campground is nestled in oak and poplar forests and is noted for its large, private sites and scenic beauty. There is a 20-30 foot forested buffer between sites, and each site is provided with a picnic table and a fire ring.The campground is closed for winter. Information about winter camping opportunities is available on the DNR web site.

    This one takes me back to childhood. I have been here a couple of times through a VFW program, some of the most special times of my life has been here, I wish I could remember them better. I definitely want to go here as an adult.

    I took my friends here as an experiment in rustinc camping. They don't camp a whole lot but all of us enjoyed this campground. The sites are wooded allowing a some privacy. The toilets are vault toilets but they are the cleanest out houses I've seen at a state park. Plus there are hiking trails along the lake with easy access to them. After we got home We planned another trip out there. Overall this is a great place.
