  • This place is amazingly beautiful. It's great for camping, kayaking, swimming, fishing and relaxing. Very peaceful place. Sand beach is good for kids. Good camping spots.
  • Absolutely terrible here. Lots of Bugs and Weird Slimey Creatures. It rains all the time here. When I mean rain, I don't mean raindrops, I mean Mosquitos. You should never go here, it is disgusting.
