  • Fancy site, beautiful lake, it is amazing except the "wild lives". I stayed at site 17 and there are so many cockroach that made my stay a terrible experience. In the night, they fly and hit my body like crazy. I killed more than 10 a night but there were more out there running on the ground. I understand cockroach is a part of nature, and there are many wild spices that play roles of decomposers. But those I saw are not! And it's obviously not natural to have so many cockroaches in woods.
  • Outstanding place to camp, fish, and boat. The facilities are top notch and the staff was genuine and warm. Lots to do but the level of accessible seclusion is unmatched.
  • It's really pretty! The down side is that their laundry facility, is one washer and one dryer. The dryer didn't do to good and where the hose for the washer goes in, there is a bird nest with baby birds in it.
  • This is the better of the parks in this area. Large park with campground, beach area, plenty of playgrounds and picnic areas. They have one trail, tennis courts and a basketball court.
  • Beautiful campsites and a great staff who are always super helpful!
