It's a great place to go especially with kids since they stock daily. It's not a challenge and it can be very crowded. Beautiful views and great camping for sure. Wonderful staff and clean grounds.

Our family of 4 loved the nice hiking trails. Also enjoyed watching the fly fishers do their thing. The water was crystal clear. Definitely worth the time if you are near the Cassville area.

I like Campground 2. Right on the water. Campground 3 also has a few spots close to the water. There is a map with pictures on the reservation site. As for the cabins I don't believe any are right on the water.

I paid $21 a night for water and electric. Not sure about sewer. There is a Dump station at campground 3 that most people use.
