My family takes a camping trip every year. This year we decided to try fools hollow lake. We had watched the videos and thought it was beautiful. What the video did not show is that those lovey rocks on your camp site drop off and are a 20 foot cliff ! No where does it tell you that these site are on the edge of a cliff. My grandson fell from these rocks all the way to the bottom and ended up with a very seriouse concussion and some memoery loss. Also on the second day we were there a female ranger came along and started questioning my son in...Read More

One of the best kept parks we've ever visited. It is very nice on every level.
Sadly the condition of the lake which I'm told is 8 feet below what is considered normal level means the fishing docks are essentially useless, particularly the covered ones.
If the lake is to remain at this level the docks should be relocated and made useful.

What an awesome campground! We camped 3 nights in a tent in the Osprey Loop. Campsite 20 is amazing! Large campsite with a short walk to the bathrooms and showers that are very clean and have nice hot showers that are free. You can walk down the short trail to the lake, which of course provides a beautiful backdrop for the campsite. Everything about the park was very well kept up. Very impressed with the price and amenities.

My grandson fell from these rocks all the way to the bottom and ended up with a very seriouse concussion and some memoery loss. Also on the second day we were there a female ranger came along and started questioning my son in law, asking if he lives in my house hold. I rented 3 sites . I walked up and asked if there was a problem and she said she knew we were still expecting another car and I said that yes we were. She asked me if those people lived in my house with me. When i asked why she informed me that if they didnt I would have to pay 15 per person on these site and that the state had changed the rules and that now you can only have house hold members on your camp site or you have to pay. I told her that all three of those site were paid for and no where did it state this new rule on the web page or on the rules and regulation paper i had in my car and that i was not paying for that. I also asked that if this is the case how was I then able to rent 3 , 12 man camp sites ? Who the heck has 36 people living in there home ? There was also suppose to be a small sandy area for swimming..I would like to know where that was since the only sandy area was covered in rocks. We will never return to this place again. I feel the female ranger was trying to scam money from us...especialy since she backed down and acted like she was doing me a favor by doing so. The rangers drive very fast all night long thru these sites and we were afraid and had to caussion the children about getting up and going to the bathroom after dark for fear they would be run over. This trip is with out a doubt the worst trip we have ever taken any where. Not kid friendly as far as safety is concerned. My 16 year old daughter was also sent to the emergency room. She recieved 3 stitches to her chin and scraoed enough flesh from her shin that she has exposed nerves, and is alot of pain. we all spent our 4 day camping trip falling over rocks. Over half of our friends and family came home bandaged and bruised. And to answer your question no we are not just clumsy or careless people.
