Outdoor Activities

Lake Russell is a trophy striper lake with 540 miles of shoreline. Other species of fish include crappie, large mouth bass, spotted bass, flathead catfish, channel catfish, trout and various types of bream. Fall crappie are running now till Nov. and they are delicious!

This area is quite known for these outdoor activities.  We have a wonderful tent area for horseback riders to set up camp away from the RV sites.  From our campground, you may ride lakeside! We also welcome bikers and hikers too!

Hunting the Army Corp property is FREE hunting! You must have a valid hunting license and stay within the boundaries that are clearly marked by 2 red lines. There is also a 2500 acre archery only area near us. Hogs and coyotes have become a problem in this area and hunting for these is encouraged! No limit on hogs or coyotes and these may be hunted day or night. Deer and wild turkey are also abundant!
