We arrived at Claytor Lake State Park the morning after an 11 inch spring snowfall. None of the sites were plowed or occupied but the camp host quickly called and within 30 minutes our site was plowed. He made sure we were situated comfortably and warm. The ranger also checked on us to see if there was anything we needed. Due to the snowfall, electricity was out so we had to use our generator and water tank until the last of 3 days that we were there. Even so, I would recommend this park and would return under better weather conditions as it's nicely wooded and has a lake nearby. The site was level and we'll spaced and the camp host and ranger were great.

Payed to stay overnight..the next day a ranger wok us up to say we were in violation . He was nice. Very nice actually but it would helped to have entrance blocked and signs up saying that closed for season so no overnights. No signs anywhere. And you still have a place with envelopes for money and a place to accept money for staying... nothing saying anything about closed and so on. And i'm from out of town so kinda frustrating. Would have loved it otherwise.

Beautiful, very clean. We went cross-country skiing after it snowed. In the summertime we enjoy the beach, boat rentals. Great Marina where we rented a boatslip for many years.

Not their fault but went to Bbq there and there was high fire risk so they wouldn't allow grilling making it a wasted trip

Always love this beautiful lake. We love to take the boat out, camp, and enjoy the pristine swimming beach.
