    A wonderful campground with a beautiful beach. Some of the sites are well-shaded, others are not. Bathrooms were small and therefore always a little bit muddy/dirty since it was a busy weekend. Park has hiking trails (which are not very well marked in some places), playgrounds, and a fishing pond/pier for the kids. Highly recommend!
