  • Great camping spot you are right on the water. Most campsites have there own little pebble beach area. There is even 1 night overflow camping that has a good view. Bring your paddle board, kayak, swim gear, and enjoy the warmest lake around.
  • This place is amazing! If you like having an amazing view while camping this is the place. A must see, even if it's just to walk it. Was very surprised at the layout of this campground. I will be returning again!
  • Great place to go lots of sites to camp in and a large overflow that you can stay in. The point splits the lake so depending on which way the wind's blowing you always have a calm side to swim in
  • We expected more sandy beach spots. Though it was nice to walk around, it was very short. Could see it being a nice place to camp.
  • I've only used this place on day use. Drink beer and lay about chasing pesky mosquitos away.Can be very hot here so bring lots of ice.
