Checked out this lake, camp sites are big and roomy, not squeezed close to your neighbor. Nice picnic area by the lake.

Lake Greeson is a well cared for place by the Army Corp of Civil Engineers. The lake has nice camping spots for relatively low prices. The fishing was awesome too.

Definitely worth seeing! Good parking, clean bathrooms, and good swimming areas. The campsites looked convenient, however, we did not camp there.

We stayed at a cabin on the lake, but we did not fish. There were lots of fishermen at the Swaha Marina, and they were celebrating their 40th year of meeting/fishing this lake. So that means they must catch fish. It seems to be connected...More

On a 6 foot leash is what rules say. Depends on the park ranger & neighbors. I personally prefer the primitive areas with my big dogs
