Beautiful view when it's cleaned up after spring no cell reception though, lodge is pricey so don't eat there but worth the drive

Step back in time and relax with beautiful views and a great pool and fun beach. This place is definitely dated but it did have flat screen tv. Small coffee maker and a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding moutains. The pool was large and my family loved it. It overlooks the lake. The lodge rooms are spacious and offer wonderful view of lake. ( some have lake and pool views. The dinning room food was good it also offers beautiful views of lake and beach. The staff was very nice and attentive. Not sure if it ever gets busy in dinning room as we were only family in the place for 2 nights in a row. Very quite and relaxing no music or anything. Its like stepping back in time when you are in the lodge to a simpler time. We did get wifi codes that worked but definitely dont expect to get great internet access. I was aware going into this that it may or may not work since we were so far from it all. Closet town is 30 mins away in hazzard. We filled coolers with snacks and bottled water and such...knowing we would be far from any restaurants other then the lodge. My family had a great time hiking a trail and just having good old fashion fun in the small park overlooking the beach. The tennis court was a mess so dont expect to play tennis. Overall I would go back maybe rent a cabin and stay. You really can't beat the views!!

We stayed at the buckhorn campground right down from the dam. Kind of nervous about trying new places, especially ones like this that are way out there. Long story short...it's beautiful. Well taken care of. Clean bathhouse/restrooms. Very nice pads. Right next to the creek. Quiet. The only advice I have is pick a spot on the left side of the campground if it's hot. No shade on the right. Nice playground. Will definitely be back. Our 34' travel trailer had plenty of room, even parking the truck in front. All the sites seem simular in size.

I just love this place, the view the calmness. Family centered place. My church has worship every year. Bring your chair and a book or fishing pole. The parade of boats is exciting too.

The top of the dam was beautiful! We talked to the people in the office, and they were so nice! They gave us a lot of information about the region, which was great because we weren't locals. They had recommendations about the nearby campground, but sadly, we were passing through on business. But we've added it to our list of favorite vacation spots!
