BE AWARE of Electric problems!!! We pulled in and left after a frustrating 1 1/2 hours! Evidently they had a transformer blow on Monday BUT it is not fixed. We plugged into 50amp and put out slides and jacks down and went into set the TV and no power. Nothing in 30amp and no 110 outlets on base to put in our tester.... we checked other lights on the bases and another RV'er who had just pulled in was having problems. We walked around to check what we could and went to try the 30amp in another site...after plugging in we saw the meter peg 140V. I called outdoor rec and the young man said he would make a couple calls and get back to me-never did! We and two other couples immediately packed up and left. I don't know if they will fix as it is "off season" and no host there and the 30amp older side seemed to be fine(unless they were not aware)and maybe outdoor rec thought I was a female who didn't know what I was talking about...SO please check electric!!!
Granted, I am visiting during Tornado season. However, this type of weather occurs the same timeframe each year. When it rains, and it rains often, the gravel turns into grey mud with alot of small lakes. Since I arrived there is approximately 30 feet of space behind my 40' motorhome that is unusable due to the lake behind my coach. You are not permitted to launch your own boats, kayaks, etc. into the lake. You need to rent MWR boats. The only nice thing I can say, is that the Camp Host Bud is wonderful!!! One of the nicest Camp Host I have ever had the pleasure to meet.
I'm not sure why the other reviews have such a high rating. We visited the park during its peak season and it was very disappointing. Water pressure was abysmal and the bathrooms close to the camping loop were closed (and they don't look like they have been open in quite a while). The bath houses located a couple of hundred feet away near the snack bar were not clean. While there is ample space in the newer loop for big rigs, there isn't any privacy and not much to look at (a vacant field behind the park and the lake is mostly obsured). The best thing that can be said about the park is that its relatively easy to get to from the interstate. There is a nicer public RV park on the river that is closer to the interstate and seems to be in better condition.
Seems to be two different sections to the campground. Old and New or High Rent and Low Rent. I was assigned to the Low Rent section. When making reservations make sure not to get assigned to the outside row if your trailer is very long. Almost didn't get my 30 ft 5th Wheel into the assigned spot. The gravel parking pads were not level or graded. Weed/grass control was a little lacking in the Low Rent Section. There are no Fire Rings for a campfire in the camping area.(Forget about roasting a hot dog unless you pack up and go to a picnic area.) Rental fees at the Boat House are extremely high. Boat house hours are very limited on weekends. If you are just passing through it will cost you a bundle to take the kids fishing for a couple hours.
