Lake Mcswain Recreational Area Reviews & Ratings
This is awesome for kids! A great lake that does not get to many visitors, so it does not crowded. $8 all day pass but $24 an hour to bounce or $38 a day pass. We had a blast renting a paddle board and the paddle boat. The other option would have been a kayak to rent.
I camped here quiet recently and fell in love. We are going to start going back at least once a year. One night in the camp ground with now hookups is 25$ and it’s so worth it. Our camp site was right on the lake and almost no one else was there! We spent a lot of time just laying in the lake and basking in the sun. It’s real hot there in the summer. We were swimming in the lake and even talked to people passing by on boats. They have a restaurant, and a fun blow up thing on the water. Although it is not run by the park and is extra money. At night the moon was so bright you could just walk around. The rangers were also very nice one of them ever had tattoos, and I think that’s cool 😎
Nothing better on a scorching-hot day than to spend time in the cool water! Many full-hookup (power/water/sewage) sites, some offer pull-through parking for convenience.
Beautiful rec area. Great camping sites & includes free hot showers. Sites with full hook ups or with electric are $28/night. Discounts for military, seniors & handicap.
It's so beautiful here, the views of the mountains and lake will really get you there. The staff is really nice and they're out patrolling looking for the bad stuff. They keep the area really clean!
