Description - Archusa Creek Water Park includes a 450 acre lake which is open year-round. The lake is a fisherman's paradise with large quantities of bass, catfish, perch and bream. The blue-green waters and piney woods provide relaxation for campers and fishermen year round.

Attractions - The park has a campground, four cabins, a private pavilion, a lodge hall, picnic areas and disc golf course. Other attractions include a Dixie Youth baseball field, a professional volleyball court, a playground for the children, and a one-half mile nature trail for nature lovers. Plans are underway for a future waterslide facility.

The campground offers 69 campsites. 56 of the 69 campsite offer water, electricity, sewer hookup. The picnic areas are equipped with barbecue grills and family size picnic tables. Just a phone call will reserve a private pavilion or the lodge hall. The lodge is great for large group gatherings. The four cabins are A-frame style and can be used for weekend outings or vacationing. The campground has motor home hookups and aluminum boat rentals are available.

In the fall of each year, the water park hosts its annual Forestry and Wildlife Festival featuring chainsaw sculpting, races, special events and activities for all ages.

The highest rainfall comes during the spring months, but December and January are wet, too. Expect temperatures in the northeastern region to be somewhat cooler than the rest of the state.

Report: Archusa Creek Is the best place to camp. It's absolutely wonderful. The last 2 times my family and I camped there, there weren't many people, but the staff are wonderful and overall the entire grounds are wonderful. The fishing is really good and when you're tired of being in the sun the shade under all those bright green leafed trees is a great place to relax and enjoy the breeze. The bath houses are clean also, and that is very important. Take a baseball and bat and/or a volley ball and if there are enough people maybe you can work up a team. We are going back Easter weekend and hope to see more people there!
