|"Jal...Small town Big Heart"
I guess the small island in the middle of the lake contributes the "a" in Jal to overhead viewers.

Jal Lake Park's RV area is a paved parking lot on the north edge of the park with six very spacious campsites.
|The Mini's site included a covered picnic table and grill.
The park has a couple really nice features, one is a walking sidewalk that goes all the way around the lake. If you're a walking nut like me who gets their "steps" in every day it's really useful, and a huge improvement compared to walking in the street.
|A lap equaled 3/4's of a mile.
There's a covered workout area with various body weight resistance stations.
|The covered exercise area. I'd do a lap then one exercise station then a lap.
There's a large flock of ducks that calls the park home and they're almost tame, they sleep by the walking path and seldom even move when you walk by.

Jal Lake Park is a little gem of a free campground, even if you can only stay three days. I'm in Texas now but on my way out to Arizona after Thanksgiving you can bet I'll spend a couple days in Jal before continuing on my way.
Thanks for reading!
