  • Perfect place to vacation. Hiking, biking, paddling, golfing and swimming in a lake or pool. Great little store and cute gift shop. Friendly people, quiet camping even with every site full. Loved it!
  • Fun place to go. The RV and car camping section is much nicer and quieter than the resort side. One dangerous thing is they allow swimmers to swim in the boat loading dock. Not safe at all as boats are always coming and going.
  • It's a natural wonder! Love the sites. So many things to see. Polite staff. One of my favorite places to camp!
  • One of our favorite places to camp. Clean, quiet, and just right. Beware your kids bike tires though, this place will eat them alive with their goatheads - bring some green tire goo or patches!
  • Many great Lakes, beautiful scenery, and informative visitor center. A great stop, would recommend.
