  • Small but nice park, beautiful lake with a nice playground and a small beach. Campsites are close together but not on top of each other, and the campsites each have a fair number of trees. Bathrooms were ok, and the pay showers were pretty nice.
  • Un lugar muy bonito para hacer picnic, nadar en el lago y simplemente disfrutar de la naturaleza. Tiene un parque de juegos para niños. Los baños estaban muy limpios. Tienen alquiler de Kayak. A horas específicas del día ofrecen actividades para los niños. El paisaje es hermoso!!! Si están cerca vale la pena ir.
  • I go here every year for a motorcycle camp out. Beautiful setting, and very clean campsites. However, if you want to sleep in a tent, it can be a challenge now as they put crushed stone on every plot. There are some lean to buildings available, but not every site has those.
  • We went there for the first time after the season ended and found ourselves at the closed gate of a private camping weekend. The folks there were so kind and allowed us entrance. The beach is small and perfect, the water was not weed filled even for almost early fall. We kayaked and swam the entire lake. Very friendly locals as well came to say hi during our visit. We will definitely be back for hiking and more water sports!
  • Great beach. Lots of trails
