  • The lake is the attraction here. They do have a nice campground and a lot of raccoons but I'd recommend Turkey Run SP nearby.  more »
  • We camp here in our RV every summer, many times in the summer. We bring our RV's, tents, boat and wave runner. There are usually 17 of us plus friends. We set up our tarp on the beach, keep our boat a...  more »
  • We had a family cookout at the park. I recommend the walking trial. The park is beautiful and well kept. If you like to visit parks with water this a good choice.  more »
  • Very friendly staff at the front gate. Nice clean beach, although it could use a deeper area. Bathrooms were clean. Main path was paved and well kept. The big problems are in the campsites. The campsites are close together and significantly non-level. Leveling front to back is not a significant issue, but a majority of the sites were not level left to right. The leveling problems led to us breaking a jack which could have been quite dangerous. In addition we were forced to leave early due to a sick dog.
  • We first went on a Friday, in July, which probably wasn't the best idea. Almost every site was filled. Wasn't too bad, but I would have preferred more privacy.. The next time we went we camped During the week and had the whole place to ourselves. It was such an amazing time having the raccoons all swarm our site because there wasn't anyone to scare them away. Such a good experience. The last time we went on Halloween because it was in the 70s and had one person beside us, we asked if we could move but they said we couldn't do that. Could have gone without their humming generator, but still made the best out of it. Moral of the story, if your a recluse, go during the week and check before you book if you have any neighbors. 😁
  • Staff is very nice, and plans good and fun activities . Very nice beach to go swimming . I recommend to come here to camp, and have good time of never been .
  • A great camping value for families and plenty to do. Nice camp store too.
  • Its very family oriented. Laid back place to have a great time. Lots to see and do!!!
