    We park our RV at Clear Spring Park, a Core of Engineers camp ground. The entire campground is well maintained and clean. Bath houses are air conditioned in summer as well. Wildlife we see on every visit include: Canada Geese and other water birds, deer, squirrel, skunks, rabbits. We will definately go here again.

    This lake can be a great area to fish or hunt, but to be honest it is dirty and i wouldnt set foot in it. If i were heading to this area to spend time i would head south to Caddo Lake or North into Arkansas to Lake Millwood.
