Typical camp sites and amenities, but it's completely undermined by dawn to dusk battle with flies. Been this way every time we've been to Jackson Lake (4). Doesn't seem to matter the time of year? Perhaps they are attracted by the smelly sewage holding tanks...More

We had a family reunion at Jackson Lake this weekend and the lake was teeming with dead carp, which created a really nasty smell. Angry red ants were biting everyone on the beach. And horseflies were out with a vengeance. Other than that, the lake...More

This was my second time to the lake in 3 years. It seems to always have dead fish floating throughout the lake, washing up on shore and it stinks. The smell is awful and the bugs are plentiful. I am not sure what is going...More
