  • Lake Meredith is a jewel! The hiking trails are wonderful. Now we can go even when we're not planning to be on the water.
  • Free Camping @ its best. My camping spot was up a bluff from the lake, as were the others. Not many beaches at this lake. Strong winds at times. The showers are new and private: bath with toilet, shower, bench, sink, which can be locked. Absolutely wonderful spray. Made driving six hours that day worth it.
  • Great lake and decent camping sites.
  • Great lake. They just need someone to clean up a bit and attend to it every once in a while.
  • Camp sites are free! The bathrooms are clean and have nice showers! I don't know why this place wasn't crowded, but I'd recommend going here if you're in the area.
