A nice, brand new campsite right next to the Great East Road at Chongwe Bridge. Big rigs can park in the parking area with access to the beautiful garden. Ample space for ground tents and RTT’s closer to the river. Loose standing ablutions with option of using the facilities of a room. Room prices are ZKW 250 and camping ZKW100ppn neg. Road noise inevitable. Did not stay as it was too early and we wanted to get to Lusaka.

12 hour parking limit in the truck/RV lot. The car/van lot has only 2 hour parking spots with signs forbidding sleeping in vehicles. There is a third parking lot but it’s only for the Welcome Center and signs threaten towing if it’s used after the Welcome Center closes. Access to a large nature trail area from the Welcome Center lot. Dogs and bikes are not allowed in the nature trail area.

Amazing views from restaurant and view point.
The bungalows (BG2) are very basic and simple, not nice. But aircon was working (just a short power shortage in the first night)
We stayed 2 nights in bungalow 73, a little view to the river.

It is indeed a quiet place and there are not many places around since the area is pretty populated. But you are also very close to the road and you can be seen.
In our case just after 15 min we got a visit by the "Chief headman" with his wife and some other elder villagers. It was a friendly visit and they allowed us to stay for the night - but everybody knows that you are there if staying here.

Lovely spot to camp! Suitable for big rigs. Saw brown hyaena and seals. We were lucky to have no wind so wind protection wasn’t an issue for us.

We stayed on one of their prime campsites with private ablusion at R697 per night. What was supposed to be the highlight of our trip ended of in a very unpleasant experience, due to continuous construction noise, they are busy building 4 "Glamping" units on the prime campsite section. We were not informed by the office staff, neither were there no signs up informing guests about the construction, and the construction noise.

Quiet, close to a small rural road. Locals either ignored us or were very friendly.

Don’t count on this for diesel at the moment. They were able to pump only 5L into my tank. They said they knew there was an electrical problem with it,but they rarely sell diesel there. I’m glad I got 5L at least, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it…

Amazing spot to park overnight! View is fantastic and the advice to park away from the trailhead was good - people do come quite early to start on the trail.
There are picnic tables, garbage/recycling/compost, pit toilets. I’m not sure when the pit toilets and garbage cans are locked/taken down for the season.

Bathrooms, beach showers and water bottle filling station on site. Stayed here two nights with no issue. First night there were others staying, second night we were alone. Cleaning guy comes through and cleans the bathrooms around 9am. There are no light posts in the lot so it’s hard to find at night. Huge parking lot.

This is a state picnic area on Nichols Lake that is open 6am-11pm. There is a paved parking lot, decently clean pit toilets, picnic tables with grills, small beach/swimming area, and a well water pump. There are plenty of people here during the summer but hardly anyone during the off season. The sign says no overnight camping however car and van campers could probably stay here for one night during the off season.

4x4 only! Steep 4-low trails in BLM land up against Mount Irish Wilderness. Amazing views! Can hear the planes taking off from Area 51. Fairly level ground. May need levelers. E.T. phone home! Very little signal Verizon at the top of the route.

We stayed overnight here. The temperature was dropping below zero and all of the lodged and hotels wanted too much for the off season. This Inn was willing to negotiate, they’re very friendly and have warm, clean rooms, hot showers and wifi.

Dispersed campsite with fire ring, beside the lake. Gravel access road has a couple of rough spots but is doable in a 2 wheel drive car. There are several campsites with fire rings along the access road. Fishing and swimming right from the campsite. Good Verizon signal. $10/ night via Oklahoma State Parks website. Showers available a couple of miles away at State Park RV established campgrounds.

Lots of spots with many spur roads. See rigs of all sizes but probably need to be mindful of where you drive, lots of sand. Good Verizon LTE. Don't leave your garbage behind!

Big parking lot on river for canoe and fishing access. Close to I88 and noisy, but saved our ass as all of New York closed for camping on Indigenous People day-public and private.

Plenty of spots closer to the highway if you only plan to stay one night. It is a bumpy road to get to the canyon overlook and high clearance is definitely needed. Good cell service on ATT. No amenities.

First off I’m kinda sad that we spent a hour picking up trash in the parking lot near the fire pit. What is wrong with you people ! I don’t even wanna tell people how great this spot is so you don’t come here and ruin it

Checked going north. They asked to see inside our camper but when we told them it's a pop up he said no. Took a look in our back seat and waved us on thru.

Nice flat area with a rock fire ring. Easy drive in pickup truck camper (didn’t need to use 4wd), a little sandy road, but no problem for truck or 2wd Suzuki that followed. A little road noise from nearby road but few cars on it. We have 2 bars on Verizon.
