  • We showed up hoping to be able to drive through to check it out. We got turned away at the gate. Seems like a poor practice for a campground. Rock cut state park is down the road, go there.  more »
  • We stopped here for one night on our return from Minnesota. One of the worst campgrounds I've stayed at. We are in the middle of a field. Not one lousy tree. No shower or bathroom within 1/2 mile. And...  more »
  • $10 tank fills for divers is a plus. 56 degree temps in "The Hole" are a minus. Plan on a 7mm wetsuit even at the end of July. Visibility in the afternoon was several feet. It didn't help that the "ad...  more »

  • My favorite place for a dive! Crystal clear water for both SCUBA and beach going. No murky water here! Super warm water. Since it isn't huge, it isn't ice cold like Lake Michigan. Well taken care of and friendly staff! Pricy to get in but worth it. You can tell they put the price of admission into keeping it beautiful.
  • Big camp site space. The beach is glorious. They have a few rules but it keeps the place clean and ruckus free.
  • Drove an hour and a half to check out the place and after five minutes standing Lakeside the owner came up to us and said you have to pay right now or leave. We asked what could he tell us about the place he said you have to pay right now or leave. Then he turned walked away stuck the cigar in his mouth and seemed completely annoyed that we would even ask any questions about the place. Swimming on the beach was $15 per person.... And that's all the info we could seem to draw from him. Incredibly poor first impression. We then drove 5 minutes away to Victoria Lake and we're extremely surprised how nice the place was.
  • We had a great time scuba diving here.
