Michelle and I camped at Payne this weekend. Overall the campground was ok but not quite what I expected. Some sites had odd layouts ( like ours) I had to drive back around and ask which way to park and setup! We setup on the edge of the loop not backed into a site or anything. The rest of the site was large and 2 parking spots at the end of the site which was actually nice not having to be backed up to the PUP. Most of the waterfront sites did not have much shade but some of the other sites looked pretty nice. I think it is more suited for boaters as many had boats tied to the shoreline near their sites and were tenting with boat trailers parked.
I would go again but probably do an interior site with more shade.
Here’s our site:

Hey Chris, I will agree that the site is some what weird. I have a question about your portable tank. I have one just like it and I don’t like it at all. I am probably doing something wrong but I cannot get it to fill completely up or empty completely out. Any ideas about what I am doing wrong?

The tank is a 27 gallon and we overflowed it this weekend. Not too bad to empty but the drain is not at the edge so tilting does not fully drain. I sort of have to slosh it back and forth and sometimes another couple gallons seem to come out. I removed the plastic tow handle that screwed/clamped on as it was a major pain. I got a metal " tow bar" attachment that can hang on  the trailer ball to take to drain out and it works pretty good.
