  • Very nice park, beautiful scenery. Well maintained grounds, buildings, campground, but CABINS NOT SO MUCH. Need to spend some money on upgrading cabin interiors. Kithcen table and chairs and 2 wooden Adirondack chairs (very uncomfortable), that's it ! No lamps, couch etc... Interior light was outdoor street light type fixture. Worn floors and particle board ceiling. Kind of depressing. Stayed in cabin C. Nice location on creek and more separated from other cabins. Close to park amenities. Lots to see and do, but again, CABINS NEED SOME UPGRADES.
  • I love the open space that allows you to explore with a family even with young children ages one and up. Easy to hard hiking trails along with swimming and a sandy beach to enjoy. They have close restrooms and a place to buy snacks. They even have first aide boxes but could use more. The place never gets old due to the seasons and nature with beautiful scenery.
  • Amazing Park. Beach looked great (we personally didn't had time to go). Shower also have restrooms. Lots of campsite are gravel so make sure you have thick mat if you sleep in a tent.
  • Great park, great staff, quiet time on August 20th. Dang the bath facilities are the absolute cleanest I ever saw...been camping for years.
  • The lake and beach area are always an iffy during the summer months. The campground is nice. Make sure you bring either your own water or containers to carry water from the pump to your camp site. Bathrooms are nice too. Real toilets.
