We Are Spoiled
We can't camp anywhere else now that we have Wayne Fitz to compare to!! So sorry for all the other campgrounds in America!! Biggest yards, best views of the lake, clean, friendly; did I mention all the space?! We love watching all the deer roam around, riding bikes, walking the clear trails, biking the clean, paved trails, and picnicking under the lakeside pavilions. Showers are well-kept, and the playground is great to keep the kids occupied just long enough! We tried keeping this gem to ourselves for long enough; please go enjoy Wayne Fitzgerrell!!

Middle Of March
Very nice and quiet. $20 seems a bit much for out of season and only electric, but I was glad they had one of the campgrounds open. I'm sure this place gets rocking in the summer.

Greeted by deer at night and pelicans in the morning. Level sites, easy to navigate coming in at night. No water hookup. I didn't use the bathrooms, but hubby stopped in the small ones and said they weren't the worst or best. Scenery was beautiful!

Nice And Rustic
Great place to visit stayed for one night passing through would enjoy spending more time here. When coming to the park do not use exit 83 use exit 77 I ended up having to back up a 42 foot motorhome and trailer for approximately a half a mile.

This park is fantastic! Super large sites. We planned on staying two nights but stayed three because it was so peaceful. There was plenty of availability and we could pick any site that suited us. We were there the weekend of their annual Halloween festivities, and it we great. The park staff, hosts, volunteers and regulars to the park did a wonderful job despite the mid-afternoon rain storm. I would highly recommend and will stay here again, even go out of my way to do so if I find myself in the area.

Next Time
Just toured so we would know to stop next time. Tons of spaces and plenty of room. Electric but no water hookups. Fill tank up when you enter the park and there was a water pump at each main area. Bathrooms are a hole only!! Some are bigger with one shower.
