A rather large first come, first served non-reservation 420 site campground. They have 90 full hookup sites, and some with only water and electricity. When the lake is full, it is a beautiful place to visit. There are free ranger led activities usually scheduled. There is a playground for small kids. And there is a small general store and gas station on site. Fishing is the primary activity. Trout and Bass tournaments are held regularly. There is a small marina with a cafe and tackle shop. Boat rentals are available.
