  • It's beautiful there we had the camp area to our selves for must of the day. the lake/ river was huge sadly fishing were not allowed when we got there but they let us know ahead of time bacteria levels were too high. If we had a boat it would have been amazing to explore the river. The hiking was intense the small trail is best lol.
  • Family Favourite since the 1970's. Always had a fun time here as a kid. Camping is fun with unisex facilities. Highly recommended
  • We camped for one night with two tents in one site. $30 for the night. The showers don't really get hot, so prepare for a brisk shower! Otherwise, the land is beautiful and we viewed a lot of wildlife around the campsite! :D
  • Spent 4 nights here with with my wife's family. We rented 3 of the 4 cabins down near the river. We took walks, rode bikes, and really just sat around talking. Staff was on the ball and very knowledgeable about the park and the wild life. I would recommend this place to friends.
  • It's a nice looking place, but there's nothing on their website saying they don't allow camping after labor day, so I was very disappointed.
