We had called the day before our arrival and made an informal reservation - the gal took our name etc., and assigned a site, but did not require an deposit. Site 29 was our assigned site.

Date of visit: Feb 2011

All sites are in the woods, with some a little more sunny that others. Setting up a satellite dish can be a challenge. This is the only double site, 30.

It's a short walk from the campground to the day-use picnic and swimming area. There are several covered pavilions and some play equipment for the kids.

The sandy beach and swimming are is located on Chickasaw Creek. That's the I-65 bridge over the creek in the background, and yes, you can hear traffic noise in the campground.

There's a dual-ramp boat launch near the beach. The ramp looked awfully steep to me.

SThe ninth hole on the 18-hole disc golf course. We saw notices for regional tournaments posted near the first tee.

Overall Impression:

This is an OK place for a night or two stop, but it didn't strike us as much of a destination kind of place.
