  • Really cool water access for the dogs. The fishing wasn’t great though.
  • Clean. Quiet. Level campsite. What more do you want from a campsite?
  • Cleaner than it used to be. Waterfront tent camp sites are now double in size with 2 tables and 2 fire pits although you'll need to bring your own shade for some sites. Dogs must be on a leash but there's a new fenced dog park on the west side and next to the water. Could use more bathrooms closer to campsites though. Firewood is available for $7.56 including tax.
  • This is our favorite place to camp. The RV sites are kept clean and we love RV #2,3,4,5 as they are spacious and far apart. The lake is always quiet and full. The crappie are huge!
  • Fair place the swimming stuff are rude they not doing their job specially a girl , she keeps other stuff busy in their personal business and securities driving so fast in parking lot when you go there be careful for your kids
