Great place to camp, but electric section lake front needs to be more leveled for campers. Previous campers dig holes to set camper tires in and don't refill them when leaving. 2018 Dam is being repaired, water level is far away from camp area. Have to walk through weeds many 5 feet tall just to get to the water. Don't mind the walk, but at least maintenance personnel could mow the weeds to make it easier on campers.

I just drove thought looked like nice lake with many campsites. The only problem is Nebraska charges 8 dollars a day for any state site you go into. So it was 10 a night for camping but you have to add 8 every time for park entrance fee. This makes it hard to go to state parks in Nebraska.

Love to go here. Right now the water is way down. But that makes for a new fun. You can drive around it and it has a beach right now.
