This campground was beautiful. We stayed on a waterfront site on the first loop. Great water views and the place was empty. Some of the sites were set up weird because they are sites within sites. Stick to the first loop on the right and...More

Ducks and geese are frequently on the lake. Deer casually meandar through the woods and on the roads. Drive through and take in the scenery. Yurts, cabins, even primitive camping. Hosts are usually nice, but if you go to primitive camping beware, they aren't very...More

Had a nice long weekend camping with family at Tugaloo. We stayed in a premium rv site which was roomy and set up nice. The lake was down and there was a fireban due to the drought conditions, but we made the best of it...More

Great site on the water, great weather, and the perfect time of year. The water was low due to lack of rain. Other than that, perfect.

We stayed later in October and the weather was perfect. Because of this every campsite was full. The only downside to this place is that you cannot reserve a specific site. You pay in advance and it guarantees you a spot, which one you get...More

Our group of 7 stayed at one of the cottages, and we really enjoyed it. It was cheaper than renting two (or possibly even 3) hotel rooms, and we got a kitchen, a grill and a firepit. Cottage 6 had wonderful views of the sun...More

There are Park Rangers living on the property and they definitely patrol the speed of cars on the roads. The camp hosts in each section are also very attentive and watchful. Actually, the thought of safety has never even... More

Yurts overlook the water. It's down hill but just a short walk up from the shore after being out on the lake. Longer walk down from the car with the kayaks to the Yurts. They have carts though.
