We had a great time at Lone Rock fishing and tubing. It was quiet but fun - water was low but still good to float in a tube. Water was cold but with sun was awesome. Lots of good fishing. However, if you go and are in a tent DO NOT book site 9. It i not tent friendly. There is no tent pad and no flat space to pitch a tent. We had to pitch our tent on a slant. Not fun. Please fix this site!!!!! Site 8 also didnt have a tent pad but had a bit more flat space. If in a tent, I would avoid these two sites. If not for this, I would have given it 5 stars!
