    We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and had no problem getting a site. The friendly staff gave us a choice of several sites and after we made our decision had us quickly registered. Site 14 was our pick, a small pull-through site with a nice view of the spillway.

    Here are sites 17 and 18. The white truck in the background is on site 16.

    Sites 19-21 are large back-in sites. Like most of the sites here, they are not very level.

    john moss05
    Sites 23 and 24.

    john moss06
    Some of the sites, such as 25-27 here, are fairly short.

    Site 28 is in the foreground, while pull-through site 12 (with the trailer) is in the background.

    Right near the campground entrance are sites 3 and 4.

    Sites 1 and 2 are both back-in sites and are quite uneven, really slanting down toward the rear of the site.

    Site 5 is a pull-through beside the bathhouse. It has a nice view of the lake off to the left.

    Site 6 is in front; on the other side of the road are sites 7 and 9.

    Sites 8 and 10 are right in front of the bathhouse. It was clean with free hot showers. About the only critique is that there is no privacy in the shower area.

    The view of the lake from site 5. The water level was lowered last fall, apparently so some work could be done on the spillway. The next morning, Monday, workers arrived bright and early and went to work. The work is supposed to be completed by the end of this week.
