  • Just a wonderful place in every season to enjoy the outdoors. The lake in summer is one of the few places besides Lake Er Actually I hope it stays a secret! 
  • We enjoyed the park and the area, but the cabin we rented, while it had a really nice layout and location, was full of cobwebs, spiders and worst of all, smelled like a smoker had lived there for deca...  more »

  • Our family reunion has been held at this site for the past three years. The camp site has plenty of activities for all age groups, but it's also close to a wonderful lake that offers plenty of water sports and fishing. For the most part, the weather was nice with temps in the mid 70s, but when it did rain, the the spacious cabins gave us a chance to play the old table top board games of the past. Overall our stay was great, but I had some issues with the general maintenance of the cabin. Some concerns included the following: 1. Cabins need new mattress. 2. Both indoor and outdoor pools need to be repaired and cleaned (vacuumed). 3. The sand pit for the parked need some TLC. Sand bees in a kids park is not cool. 4. Repair and maintain bumper boats if they plan on keeping them for the future. The best part is watching the kids discover nature's creatures while playing in a creek near our cabin.
  • Had a great site. The weather was fine. We caught some fish. The other campers were respectful and quiet. Hope to be back next year.
  • Definitely a large lake with tons of stops. We have rented a pontoon boat for 10 and for very inexpensive price were able to see almost have of the lake. There are also some beaches you can go to, plenty of quite spots for fishing. Overall, a great park to spent a Saturday or Sunday at.
  • Great lake for kayaking and fishing. Be careful of boaters coming too close and too fast near kayakers.
  • Love this lake and the people around it, very friendly. Lots to do here. Come explore you won't be disappointed.
