  • Quiet and serine family surroundings. They charge a small entrance fee and have canoes, bike peddle boats, stand up paddle board and kayaks that you can rent by the hour. Property is carry in carry out and they try to follow the BSA outdoor code. Staff is polite and accommodating. On site BBQ / picnic tables available. Great time.
  • This camp ground would be my number one state parks to go to. It is very clean, sites are roomy, good fire pits and just a beautiful place to camp. It's also close to places I like visiting. The only problem I had is they do not want you to transport fire wood so your able to buy it there. the wood you buy is wet cedar wood. It does a lot of sparking, lots of smoke then sooner or latter it will burn. the price is not bad,$5 for a arm full, would be a good deal if it was seasoned. Other then that I look forward to going back and relaxing.
  • I love this place. The water is very clean, and the campsites are large.
  • Beautiful RV / Camping park. Spots look spacious. Magnificent Emerald Lake beach for the kids to swim and play.
  • Nice campground. Clean and well kept. The main road being directly next to the campground made access easy but it was a bit noisy with traffic.
