  • Park management has many systemic issues that run from favoritism to discrimination. Would not recommend.  more »
  • We spent 5 days camping here. The Book Cliff campground staff were amazing.The park service opened early for us to buy worms that the raccoon ate the night before. I sing praises about the camp...  more »
  • $8.00 for the day to swim as long as you want! Only $25 to camp! There is plenty of shade and picnic tables! The water is perfect during the hot summer and is closed off from the boating area so you can rest assured your children are safe. The water gets pretty deep though so definitely keep an eye on your little ones.
  • Be aware of the rules. There are all kinds of infractions they'll ticket you for, and there may only be a single sign telling you so, but you won't notice it because you're too busy having fun. Rangers walk around with ticket books looking to catch somebody without a PFD or a dozen other small infractions, and there are no warnings. They seem to enjoy it, and they're a bit of an intense presence that ruins the experience, so find out all the rules before you get in the water, drink alcohol, park, bring dogs, boat, etc.
