We stayed here in a 40' MH. The dirt road into the park was long with huge ruts you cannot avoid, resulting in a bone-jarring trip into and out of the park. Interior roads were dirt in poor condition with tight turns, lots of trees to watch for, and potholes. There was no gate into the park and no security.
Hookups: We were told when we made our reservation that only 30 amp sites were available. No problem, we can still use an AC on 30 amps. Except that the 30 amp site didn't generate enough power to keep our shore power running. With nothing running but our refrigerator, we had to unhook completely at night and run off our batteries otherwise the sound of the surge protector kicking on and off kept us awake. The campground manager walked to within ten feet of the electrical pedestal to "inspect" it and told us there had never been a complaint and there was nothing he could do (other campers we talked with told us that the park is well known for having poor electrical service.) The manager moved us to another site but we had the same low-to-no voltage. This had never happened before to us and hasn't happened since, so it wasn't a problem with our coach. Although sometimes water pressure was weak, we had no problem with the sewer hookup.
From Friday to Sunday it was party city with smoky campfires and loud music. The smoke was so bad we kept our windows shut but because it was still hot at night, the temperatures in the coach soared. People let their dogs bark at every passerby. Weekends were hell. The police showed up one afternoon to arrest some drug dealers in their RV and all afternoon there were officers with AK-47s walking through the park.
Site conditions: Sites were mostly filled with seasonal campers and were very close to one another. Site surfaces were dirt and grass was minimal. There's a general feeling of neglect. At night the only light were from the many campfires; there was no campground lighting.
The good: Check-in was fast and easy. Staff was friendly. The campground was set right on beautiful Pushaw Lake and there was a boat launch. The sunsets were very pretty. Kayaks were available for rental. Free Wi-Fi was available in the office. While the signal did not reach any of the campsites, a picnic table was set outside the office for those who wanted to bring their computers to utilize it. - Trisha_slp

We stayed one night while in transit. I would stay here again, even though it is a little over priced. Approach roads to and within this park is the worst I have ever encountered, they are terrible!!!! Many sites have permanent trailers, though most were well kept. The laundry consists of 2 washers and 2 driers, so expect to wait your turn. This park is right on the lake. - R V Camper

Camp ground has lots of seasonal sites with older units parked on them. Years of additions, decks, and out side attachments which makes the area "cluttered" looking. Assigned a site to us that was very difficult to put a 39' RV in due to the many trees in the area. There were other sites available that would have been easier to set up in. The lady on the phone was very friendly and accommodating, but the lady who checked us in gave us "no" greeting, was not busy, but gave us the impression that we were putting her out by having to check us in. Lots of dusty dirt pot hole filled roads around and many tent sites with high grass conditions. This is an older camp ground that appears to be getting run down. We would NOT return to the C/G. - Lakeside013104
