  • Roomy if you get there early & plan a little. Good staff. Great for kids & pets. Watch out for extremely pesky racoon's. They will get into anything!
  • Nice cut lawn campsites. Has a fishing pier to cast your lines from near one of the main campsites. Unfortunately its lacking hiking trails. If you're going out on a boat, this is going to be a great lake for it. Other than that the campsites are good for catching z's, grilling and a camp fire. Screened cabins are available too.
  • Great park, lots of options as far as camping is concerned. Some good fishing as well.
  • Love it but the water is usually warm instead of cool but its always clean great for the family
  • Amazing views, great staffing, very clean park, restroom are great. Brand new pier and fish cleaning stations. In the afternoon the wildlife is amazing deers, rabbits, doves, roadrunners,. The fishing is great all kinds
