I stayed here in June 2013 with a group of other campers and brought a pontoon boat.
The park was very clean and on the back "A" loop we had views of the lake. The sites were level and had water and electric with a dump station on the way out of the campground. There is even plenty of parking for boat trailers with a boat launch so you did not have to leave the campground. I was amazed how little traffic there was on the lake on that particular saturday afternoon, even with 80 degree temperatures.
We did have quite a few bugs and flies and would recommending to be sure to bring tiki torches or some sort of bug repellant but it was not much of a problem until late at night.
This is a place I would definitely return to, but be sure to bring a boat to take advantage of all what you can do there.
You are not far from Glasgow in case you run out of supplies, perhaps a 15 minute drive back into town including a Walmart.
