This was a group trip to Herber Springs for the weekend. This is the best lake I've ever been to. The boating, swimming and tubing was so much fun. Highly recommend.

This is a beautiful lake with an amazing blue-green color to it! So happy to see limited commerce in this area which will probably preserve the beauty for many generations to come. Sugarloaf Mountain is so much fun to hike...Fairfield Bay Marina offers shuttle service...More

Sunday drive to this lake was a treat! Loved crossing the bridges to see panoramic views of the lake. Would like to return to rent a boat and just ride around the lake. So pretty. Only down side is that the views are not easy...More

We have Verizon and had cell service while at the campground and in town. We did not take phones out on the lake, so I am not sure about service there.

Not sure about the campsites, but there were several places around the lake that we had no service at all! Although this forces you to “unplug” on vacation, so it’s not such a bad thing ;)
