This is the best campground to stay at if you’re itching to jump into the water-- the swimming beach is only a few steps away! You can admire views of both Clear Lake and Soda Bay from a viewpoint, or hang out on the picnic tables while you enjoy lunch. Unloading is no problem because there is a parking lot conveniently right next to the site. With the Dorn Nature trail nearby, there’s no way you could get bored; there’s so much to see and do at this campground.

We went in July 2014. Great campsite. Found a semi secluded site 109. The water was refreshing but you could feel the draught is working on Clear Lake. Campground was clean and fun. Some nice hikes in the area.

Clear Lake is a scary place these days... If you like to hike or nice views this isn’t the place for you. The State Park was beautiful but mostly closed. The bathrooms were nice and well lit (there were Black Widows in the bathrooms and the showers are $.25 each minute). We brought a bee trap and there were some bugs but nothing unmanageable.
