Important Notice for Lake McSwain Spring Reservations

As you know, we strive to provide the highest quality camping and outdoor experience at Lakes McClure and McSwain. Unfortunately, we need to inform you of a potential alteration or delay for your upcoming camping reservation.  

As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain and enhance your visit to the lakes, we recently undertook a significant project to improve the campsites in the A and B loops of Lake McSwain. When completed, loop A will offer 28 premium campsites with 30 and 50 amp electric connections as well as water hook-ups.  Loop A will also offer three basic sites with water hook ups but no electric connections. Loop B will have three premium campsites with 30 and 50 amp electric, water and sewer hook ups. 

This project resulted from direct input we have received from campers like yourself. If you’d like to preview the new layout and design, we invite you to do so at

Unfortunately, the project’s completion has been delayed as a result of the recent wet weather and an unforeseen delay in connecting with the park’s electrical utility provider.  

We are regrettably having to inform you this may affect your existing scheduled reservations. Further, we are temporarily suspending new reservations for the A and B loop until the project is completed.  

Park staff will send out a weekly notification via email each Wednesday informing you of the progress on the project. There are a limited number of campsite BBQs available until the project is completed. You are encouraged to bring your own BBQ.   

The project may be completed in time allowing you to keep your planned reservation.  

However, if your reservation is impacted by the project’s delay, we have two options to assist you as best we can: 

You may keep your current reservation but may be subject to a basic site. As a result of the change, we will automatically refund you the difference in cost between a 30-amp or 50-amp electric and basic site. 

You may also completely cancel your reservation at no cost and receive a full refund. Should you choose to do this you MUST email us at Please include in the subject line of your email “McSwain Enhancement Project Cancellation.”  

We know this may be disappointing and are committed to doing all we can to keep you informed. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we work to enhance your camping experience. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (855) 800-2267.
