  • We stayed in South Montecello in our RV for a week. Pros - Wonderful vistas and sunrises. Simply beautiful. Quiet. Good walking, and we saw a black bear track on one of our walks along the Rio...

  • We were there in September when the water level was way down. The lake looked like a puddle, although there were some boaters on it. Looked like only one marina was floating. The surrounding...

  • Always our favorite place to get away. Our little piece of paradise. Please don't drain it. My 2 young girls love the water and always look forward to camping on the beach and fishing
  • Great place! Lots to do! FAIR WARNING if you’re tent camping you have to camp off the site or else your stakes will hit a cement platform a couple inches down. That would have been very nice to know before hand and before I bench most of my stakes.....
  • Great place! Nice spacious sites with great Bathroom/shower(combined)..nice laundry facility.. Lots to do in the area, nice walking trails. We camped in an RV and brought a motorcycle to travel around in...awesome rides to little towns in the middle of nowhere... loved it! Little pricey $52.. cheaper weekly and monthly..worth the price.. would stay again if in the area
  • Wow is all I can say! This park is huge and exceptionally clean, kudos to all who work and volunteer here. Multiple, beautiful campgrounds, beach and trails. Campgrounds are very busy and after staying in them you will understand why! Thank you Governor for re-opening your parks.
  • We had a great time hanging out and staying the night on the beach. Pulled up close enough to the water, built a small fire (this was in March) ate good and relaxed. Very reasonable entry fee. Easy to drive through the sand and find a spot. (We were there on a Tues) Great little getaway.
