Google and Garmon will get you lost trying find this lake and campgrounds (really 2 separate areas of the lake). The backside sites are best for tenting. Beautiful lake and lots of wildlife.

Very few people in the park. My wife and I hiked the trail all the way around the reservoir. Not a pretty day temperature-wise. We loved the clear water, the campsites, the many restrooms, the views, the wildlife. It was a very peaceful experience.
