Aug1st 2011, our first trip to Davis lake. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I did try to find as much info on the Lake online, but it was very limited so, I took some pictures and wanted to write a little info on Davis Lake for any first timers like me visiting the Lake.
I was pleased that there were many sites and they were not right beside each other. We had a tent and a tent trailer and the sites we picked (#19 and #20) were completely flat. All sites appeared to be very level. There is a steel rim to build a fire in. Outhouses were cleaned and checked daily. The park attendance were very nice people. My son was quite disappointed that the fishing was not good that weekend. A few were caught by others (trolling with wedding band, willow leaf, and worm). There is a small boat launch area and its easy to get to. Swimming is good and the lake is refreshing.
One down fall of the campsite was that Davis Lake is a VERY POPULAR destination for dirt bikes and quads noisy all day, but campers were mindful at night.There seemed to be a wind everyday, but calmed just in time for the evening. I was also happy there were very little mosquitoes. I am new to this site so I will try and see if my beautiful pictures of the Lake can be uploaded.
You will enjoy your time at Davis Lake.
I am going to post more pics on YouTube if you would like to see all the
shots I took. It will give you a good idea of what the Lake is like.
I want to add, I mentioned the dirt bikes and
quads. There is a sign posted reminding off roaders to idle out of the
campsite and onto the many trails nearby. Most campers follow the rule,
but those who don't get a "shout out" by other campers to slow down.
They do stick to the trails that are off in the hills, but the getting
there can be noisy. We still had a great time and by day 2, the noise
didn't seem to be as prominent.
