  • Great little lake. Caught a few nice Bass there. One large mouth and two small mouth.
  • Water really muddy and great get away to get a line wet.
  • The park is kept quite clean & the lake is huge!
  • Very clean and well kept facilities. Spots are spacious and most come with a Ramada and raised tent space with gravel and tie downs. Be prepared for lots of deer on the grounds in the evening. Four stars because it was a little pricey and I was sold some kind of pass that I thought offered a discount and then was told it was only for Day Use areas and it was non-refundable.
  • Great place to stay, expect to pay to use day or night visits, has cabins, fishing, RV parking, small store camping etc.
