Description

Lake Glendale is smack-dab in the middle of the Shawnee National Forest, which means all of its plentiful amenities are equally-accessible. The usual list of great camping activities rings true here—boating, fishing, swimming, biking, and hiking are all nearby, and you can sleep really dang close to the shore of Lake Glendale. Bullseye!

Wonderful campground with bathrooms and free showers for guests. A quick walk to the Lake with amazing sunsets! It was somewhere between $5-10 for a night which was well worth it for the large site with fire ring and picnic table. Would definitely recommend this campground!

We stay every 4th, great campground. It's a traditional campground, mostly open campsites with all the amenities. Water at or close by, electric, maintained bathrooms w/showers. Fireworks over the lake are spectacular.
