What are you looking for in a campsite? We ask because chances are Nails Creek has what you’re looking for. If you’re looking to teach your wee ones how to cast a line, reserve a site in the Cedar Creek camping area -- it sits right next to a designated kid’s fishing pond. Traveling with your horse in tow? Snag an equestrian site in the Bent Tree camping area. Just looking to boat the day away? Post up at one of the walk-in sites at the north end of the campground; they’re right next to the boat dock.

Rainfall will effect the water levels and make trails either inaccessible or very far from the lake.
