  • The campground itself was fine. That being said this place sets up mandatory blocks (some may call them traps) after concerts and stops everyone for an alcohol check. I get the point about safety, but if they really wanted to make it safe they should move the roadblock up the road to where the concert lets out and not just target the paying campers. If they just put a giant sign out front that said something it would not have felt like such a violation. It was insult on top of injury when I came home stone sober and had to deal with that BS.
  • Great place for the family, biking , swimming, fishing and several playgrounds for the kids. Electric at most sites and water every 200 feet around the loops. We stayed in B loop, lots of spots but only 3 showers each, 6 total.
  • Great disc golf course! The lake is a great place to have a picnic with family And let the kids swim .
  • I love to go here and hike down the trails and there's a nice little lean-to that you can go to and have a little Cookout and enjoy nature
  • I liked this place until this park ranger keeps harrasing us about the stop sign. The lady at gate told us we dont have to stop at front gate .And this puke told us once and we sopped every time since. He keeps coming back and saying dont forget to stop. Get a life you creep. Only one mens shower works good that ive been in. They sent police in to take someones plates off car bacuse of inspection. Bunch of nosy bastards.
