Quiet In February
As it was February the park was nearly empty. We laughed at ourselves that too many sites to choose from almost makes it too difficult to pick one. We stayed in Hickory Hill area with a nice view of the lake. Hot showers were much appreciated. Flush toilets. We used electric hook up and filled our water tank at the site before leaving. Very safe. Very quiet. Nice trails and areas to walk our dog. We would stop again. Only complaint was a skunk that we saw wondering thru the camping area in the afternoon! We kept our guard up after that while walking around.

Beautiful Lake
Passing through on way to Colorado. Beautiful little spot with friendly host. Very busy little lake. Only stayed for one night but definitely would return.

Ok For RV's, Tent Sites Looked Awesome
We stayed 2 nights, at Little Axe over a weekend, coming in from out of town. Coming in late there was no phone contact available, no host at the gate (I wouldn't expect there to be at 10:30pm) but a Park Ranger that followed us to our site, parked and watched us setup without saying a word or asking any questions (like a creeper). The drive to get into the RV sites was extremely narrow and could be difficult to navigate, due to vehicles sticking out beyond their site and into the road, however we were "lucky" to have one of the first sites. Pros: Level site Park pad was concrete Picnic table, grill, fire ring Cons: Extremely narrow sites with very little grass "Grass" was a mix of burrs (covered dog every time she went out) and sparse grass. Tons of ants and poison ivy (not in the woods) Bathrooms and showers were less than desirable and dirty Very few people picked up after their dogs. Will more than likely try a different area if we visit Thunderbird Lake again. Good luck.

Little Axe RV Camping
Stayed at the Little Axe campground. Very nice, lots of spots on the water. Only negatives, the hosts were almost never there, and the campsites are not very big so you don’t have much space between you & your neighbor! They are level & paved campsites, have fire pit, bbq grill, picnic table. Just don’t like not having more room when I’m camping!! All being said, I’d stay here again, during the week when it’s not full!

Only a fair rating. Bathhouse was only fair condition and requires coins. Two of the three showers were out of order. Ladies restroom light was not working and the faucet was stuck in the on position and ran all night leaving water on the floor. Men's restroom had one of the two stall doors missing and dirty had prints on the decider. The mirrors were dirty and needed attention. No hot water in the restroom. Everything needed cleaning. Sites were level and gravel. If you are fully self contained, this might be OK. Seems to be an excellent recreational area but we were there off season. I would not recommend the camp ground.

Nice Park. Quiet. Well Maintained.
We had a lakeside premium site with full hook-ups. Senior discount. Site was paved and level. Both side to side and front to back. Off season so had plenty of selection. It's a little confusing as to what the sites cost. They are posted on the electric meter. We didn't notice that until we'd selected a site. Also, never did find a dump site. Fortunately we didn't need one, but if select a site without full hook-ups, that might be a challenge. The other confusing thing was how to pay. It said the camp host would collect. We weren't sure if that meant they would come to you or you were to go to them. We parked within site of the host so walked over to pay. Could hear kids and a TV but no one answered. Later a ranger came knocking on the door. Saying the Camp host was off duty that day. There was no sign to say so. Must be irritating to them to have people coming to your door on their day off. Should fix that.
