We started at the Clear Bay Area for our hike which I thought was on the blue trail. Turned out we were on the green, then red, and maybe even yellow before we got to the Blue trail. Didn’t matter because we loved the hiking trails and for the most part were kept up but the area know as the Hood on the blue trail was majorly overgrown and it was too bad we didn’t get a chance to finish that trail and had to turn back. The one thing I will say is that you definitely need to make sure you bring bug spray because the ticks are out of control on the hikes. Other than that it was great!!!

We go primarily for bird watching. There's camping areas, day use areas, picnic areas, swimming areas, equestrian trails, walking trails, boating and RV set ups. I do wish there was more access to the water. When there's a lot of people, it is a little difficult to get through some of the areas, but it is a nice park on both sides (Hwy. 9 and off Alameda).

We took our RV to Lake Thunderbird this weekend. There aren't many RV sites on the Norman side. 50 amp sites are extremely hard to come by. The camp hosts was very nice though and once we did find a place it was pretty peaceful.

The lake looks good and has great facility for Campers and people with Boats.

Biking trails are also good. Not a very friendly hiking trail.

Good part is that they have a restroom at the beginning of the trail

Overall the area is beautiful but needs to become more hiking friendly

This park is clean with fairly easy access. Easy back in sites with shade and tree's. Our 3rd visit here and we are always lucky enough to get a lake side site.

Excellent Satellite reception (DISH) and cell phone signal (AT&T). No antenna TV reception at the site we were in but we did see people with their antenna's up.

Sites can get a bit close together, our neighbors fire pit was right outside our rear window.

We stayed 2 nights in a 5th wheel on our way to Texas.
