Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sites are not level. Poor engineering of the sites. We had to switch our site after trying for 2 hours to level our trailer side to side on site #67 & then #66. We found a suitable site else where but was concerned the next day we would have to move since our reservation was for site 67. The site areas are not well marked so on the way in we found ourselves in an area that was very tight and hard to get out of because it dead ended.

We didn't use the campsites so I cannot comment on them, but the daytime nature experience is great. A free afternoon of kayaking and hiking in quaint serenity. We didn't see a single person on the trails and it was a perfect 75 degree sunny day. Topped off the day with a picnic by the water.....socially distanced, fresh air, no charge....what more do you want?

Poorly maintained, poorly staffed by uneducated, & rude people. Cleaned our own primitive site upon arrival. Covid panic ignorant. Restrooms never clean in A.M. Campsites with electric or so called primitive, on top of each other. Told we couldn't sleep in open, without tents. No knowledge idiots after multiple phone calls. Stayed (3) days and will never go back. A joke run by local yokals.

We live about 30 min. from kinkaid and yet I probably haven’t visited in over 25 years. We were thinking of somewhere to take our kids (8 & 10) for a couple hours where we could do something without everyone staring at a screen.
When you enter you’ll see the 9-hole golf course on your left and I noticed right away how it was kept up with nicely. Roads are paved nicely, grass looked great and signs telling you were to go were rustic looking but nicely painted.
We started with putt putt. It’s a 9-hole little course. Nothing fancy and I think it’s the same as it was 25 years ago but it fits the camping, country, scenic feel. It was $3 (regardless of age). They have a coke machine and covered shelter with benches if someone doesn’t play. We seen multiple playgrounds around. We then headed to the trails located behind the putt putt. There is a creek and a little wooden bridge during the walk which is nice. I bet it’s amazing looking in the fall. The kids were hot (it was around 90) so we didn’t do paddle boats but the guy at the welcome center told us it’s a flat rate for up to 4 people and you pay by 1/2 hour or hour and it’s under $15 I know.
Overall- this park has a lot to offer (fishing, boating, trails, paddle boats, etc) and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make fun memories together. You don’t even have to pay to enter the park. It was a nice day and we will be back.

We stayed two nights. The sites are very uneven and hard to find a flat spot for a tent or even to put chairs around the fire. It is also a long walk up a steep hill to the bathrooms and only 3 stalls for all of the campers in the women's room. Beautiful area and friendly staff, though.

Kincaid Lake is one of my favorite campgrounds! It has hiking, boating a rec center (which is open unlike so many other parks), a mini golf (next to the rec center for the person who said it didn’t exist) tennis courts basketball courts, several playgrounds, an Olympic size pool, a 9 hole golf course, for the true golfer,and one of the nicest staffs of any park. Bring your dog up for a treat and talk to them - they’re very knowledgeable as well as helpful. Granted some of the sites need leveling but you’re in the out-of-doors! You’re not coming to a RV Park. Enjoy what really being outdoors is all about- nature as it was meant to be. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see wildlife and enjoy nature if that’s why you’re camping. You can’t go wrong coming to Kincaid if you’re looking for a weekend full of untamed nature.

I grew up going to this lake and was surprised to see the swimming area had been removed. I did get to kayak and the water was cool and refreshing as always. But being unaware of the swimming ban (I stayed on private property and wasn’t told), I jumped in off my kayak. Luckily I wasn’t in view of any authorities because I honestly didn’t know I wasn’t allowed to swim anymore. I mean, why would you go to a lake you can’t swim in? I still don’t know why the swimming ban. I couldn’t find anyone who could give me a straight answer. Makes sense why so few people go there now. It’s a shame. Used to be a great (and much more popular) lake.
