  • Enjoyable night camping here during a road trip in May. We were very lucky to get a spot due to the holiday weekend. Great hiking trails and nice beach with picnic areas to use. Very grateful for the laundry area.
  • Disappointing, I've stayed here for years with my family for our reunion and it's gotten worse and worse each year. We've followed the proper channels sent emails and letters as we were instructed and NOTHING! No apology via email, text, or call.i promise the owners haven't been there the cobwebs and dust inside and outside look like Halloween decor
  • We rented a handicapped accessible cabin for the weekend to have a childs birthday party. The cabin was very nice, easily accessible by wheelchair and was surrounded with well maintained sidewalks, all the way to the boat docks. In my powered chair I was able to make it downhill to the waters edge on rock paths. Overall a wonderful place and beautiful lake.
  • Beautiful lake! We stayed in a cabin at the state park for 4 days. Had a blast! Not one complaint :)
  • Nice cabin or rv spots on clean lake. Great for fishing or skiing
