If you love the great outdoors, you’ll enjoy lots of things about Lake Russell. Catch crappie, largemouth bass, catfish, spotted bass, and trout in the lake. Horseback riders and bikers will love the trails, and those carrying a valid hunting license can hunt for free. Hunt hogs, coyotes, deer, and wild turkey.
“One of our all-time favorite campgrounds to stay at. Love the Beautiful sunsets in the evenings & that it's only a short distance from the lake with nice trails to walk on. Nice to be able to stay somewhere where you can actually go hunting, & fishing. Very clean & wonderfully maintained Campground with wonderful owners! Couldn't ask for a better place to stay!!” – Tiffny McCumbers, Google Review
