Monument Lake Resort is now under new management and has a new website: monumentlakeresort.com.
 
    Thank? you. Says Diane Hess

This is a quaint little resort lake; fishing was pretty good, ours was a day trip; camping appeared to be fairly haphazard and crowded. There were very interesting ruins of stone masonary which
 led one to believe that the place had a history but in our visit we were unable to find information on the history of the place. Says Denise Smith

Just came back from a say at this ''quaint little lake resort''.

Let me say it is a very beautiful place, but that is about all the good I can say.

The RV sites are in the worst condition I have ever seen for a private campground. None of the utilities are located on the correct side for RV
 
    use, which makes it difficult for hook ups. There are a limited number of full hook-up sites, most are electric and water only, no waste. And they seem to only be available by reservation only. Which brings up another point. The website
  says the they are taking reservations from May 14 2010 through September 27, 2010. We were told that the Full hookup sites were reserved from January, hmmm makes you wonder.

The staff doesn't seem to understand anything to do with camping, or are disinterested in helping with issues concerning that. We called ahead two weeks in advance to reserve a spot, once there they had no designated site for us. Just go find one and come back to tell us which one you selected seems to be the norm.
 
The 20Amp electrical service we were given was barely adequate enough to run our RV, plus the whole campground or at least our area lost service for about an hour on two different occasions the three nights we stayed there.

Great place to go fish, lousy place to go stay a night in an RV. Says Mark H (Tue, 29 Jun 2010)
