The campgrounds at McCown Valley Park are some of the best campgrounds on the lake.
This park is on the southeast end of the lake. There are 54 campsites available within McCown Valley Park. The campsites on or near the lake have the least amount of shade. These are primarily the tent camping site. Farther off the lake there is an RV camping section and these sites all have plenty of shade.
There is also an equestrian camping section and an equestrian trail for those that bring and want to ride horses. There are great restroom facilities at this park. There is also a nice playground for kids. And you will find a very nice swim beach here that is one of the best on the lake.
