Arrived at 5:00pm for check-in, which was easy. Check-in is at lakefront store. On arrival at site, it needed to be cleaned from leaves, pinestraw and debris. Fire ring was full of ashes from previous campers. From the appearance, it had been a while since it was cleaned. It was ok as we were still able to build our fire. Later in the evening they did bring a tractor around blowing road and empty sites. Problem, it was at a time we were cooking/eating outside. Site is good with good spacing to other sites. Park has no Wi-Fi. MiFi (AT&T) would not work from site. Cell service spotty with one bar and often searching for signal from site but near store/lake service gets better. Store is nice with basic items. Firewood $4.95/bundle. TV gets 4 channels with antenna. New looking play area for kids near store. Most lakefront sites are view only as you are up on a hill with a steep drop off at waters edge. There is a area set aside for swimming next to the store. This park was built in 1984 so it is one of the newest. Why they did not put in sewer at the time, who knows. Overall, this is a great place to stay and we will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is my favorite State Park. All sites are deep, completely shaded, and have excellent space between sites. It is well maintained and mostly quiet except a few kids on weekends/holiday. Noisy parties are stopped and evicted. Large lake for fish/boating with ramp and trailer parking. Bathhouse is heated with hot/cold water and kept clean. Camp store for ice and other incidentals. Pads are level and clean. It is about 8 miles from I-77 and 15 miles from nearest town of Winnsboro. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground overall. The staff was very friendly. This is a boaters park, most of the guests had some form of water craft with them. One nice hiking trail. The bathrooms were clean when we used them. Most of the pull through sites were easily entered, especially the internal ones. Getting into some of the sites could be a challenge if the park is running full like the weekend we were there. Many vehicles in most sites. It appeared most sites needed some leveling help as our took a three block set. We would camp here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
