This is a small camping facility, located on Hauser Lake. There are boat slips, places to launch jet ski, and kayaks. Boating and fishing are very popular. We were there over a weekend, extremely busy. The RV sites are very tight! They are all back ins, it is not big rig friendly. Our site had electric, and water was nearby but not at site. There is a dump station at the exit. We camped at Black Sandy State Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was right on the water and we enjoyed great views of the river. The sites are very close together and it is a very busy park. Although it's a bit remote, it felt like we were in a city park. Site was not level on one side so I had to park even closer to the adjacent camper. It's a bit disappointing to be in such a beautiful setting yet happy that we didn't stay more than 1 night. Would not return. Host at entrance was very friendly. We camped at Black Sandy State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I'm sorry to say that this park was a huge disappointment. We arrived anticipating trees and semi private spaces, like most national parks. The sites are side by side with no separation, and not many trees. Sites were gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. There was no feeling like being in a national park at all. Proximity to the lake would, I suppose make it good for people with kids, or those fishing. We camped at Black Sandy State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

For people who are thinking that this park will give them a sense of being 'in nature,' perhaps consider finding another location.

This is a great spot for fishermen. The campsites here are right on Hauser Lake. Campers can even rent boat slips so they don't need to take the boat out of the water when they aren't in it. The only problem here is that there are 2 campsites per space, so you are really close to your neighbors if the campground is busy. We were here during a slow period, so had plenty of space. This campground is very busy in the summer, so reservations are a good idea. Park rangers are excellent and even got us an adapter so we could hook up our hose to put water on. We camped at Black Sandy State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
