About Mel Reiman

Mel Reiman is the campground where our store is located, and is operated by the Army Corp of Engineers. This campground provides a number of amenities such as bathrooms (with showers), electrical boxes, fire pits, a fish cleaning station, and a playground for the kids. One of the most popular spots here during the summer is the visitor center, where you can learn more about the history and wildlife of our lake, or you can go for a dip at the beach right next door! If you would like to rent a campsite here to spend more time with us at the Hungry Pelican, visit the link down below!
