We were there on the second half of September and stayed only one night, as we were just passing through. It was clean and quiet. The reservoir was closed for the off-season, but that didn’t matter to us as we were just there to spend...More

Nice area,clean restrooms awesome staff recommendations to nearby restaurant. Only set back it said no dogs and we found out pulling up we could have brought our dog... and the fact if you make noise after 10pm the ranger shows up... so that sucked

No matter when we have gone, even when there's a lot of people, there's always a nice spot to fix up your spot and have a nice time. We take family there when they visit from out of town and ALWAYS have a nice time.

The conditions at this reservoir are deplorable. Garbage and food everywhere. A substantial fee is collected. What is the money being used for? This could be such a beautiful place if not for the filth on the ground. The lake was wonderful.

Went to Woodward reservoir and had a great time. Went in the middle of the week. There was very few people there. It seemed like we had the place to are selves. There was some wind so it helped keep the temputure down.

Hubby and I grew up coming here with our families: camping, fishing, water skiing, etc. When we were dating we'd drive to 'the back' with a mountain of blankets and make out under the stars. We now have an annual pass and visit as often...More

Is a nice place to have fun with the family and is cheap compare to other campsites but only one thing the noise get a little out of control

It's a nice place to go swimming, have a picnic with family. Beware though, it's a popular place and you may encounter lots of people on a holiday weekend or a hot summer day.
