Arriving on a Sunday in mid-March, we had no problem finding a site. We chose #21, with its view of Steinhagen Lake.

Date of visit: Mar 07

Down in the main camp loop, this shows sites 23-24.

An overall view of the main campground loop. A nice mix of shade and sun.

Site 64 in the foreground, with the camper on site 63. In the background is a fishing pier...and the dry lake!

sancrk6
Sites 74 and 76 on the left, 76 on the right.

This nicely shaded playground is located in the main camp loop.

The bathhouse in the main loop. A little dated, it does offer hot showers.

sancrk8
Here's one of the boat ramps. Just a slight problem: no water. It seems the dam is under repair and the lake had to be drained.

sancrk16
Along the road from the gatehouse to the main camp loop are several areas with just a site or two. The motorhome is on 23, which I would place as the most attractive site in the park.

sancrk9
This is site 12, just a short distance in from the gatehouse.

sancrk10
There is a separate camp loop, called the Old Folks Loop, about a mile from the gatehouse. These are sites 35-37.

sancrk11
The most scenic site in the Old Folks loop is #41.

sancrk12
The Old Folks bathhouse is a bit shabby inside and does not have showers.

sancrk13
Right beside our site, #21, is another fishing dock. All we needed was some water for the fish.

sancrk14
The dry lake bed offered this view of some cypress trees left high and dry.
