  • We had a wonderful time. The cafe has some of the best customer service I've ever had. The little convience store has EVERYTHING we needed! It's was absolutely beautiful the entire trip. We were also lucky enough to be there while the "soft grand opening" was there for the water park. We had an amazing time. The rangers were personable and kind. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I would recommend staying at this campground to all of my family and friends. We will be back!
  • Trashy place with little regard to the environment. No swimming in the lake but they built a wasteful water park. Terrible staff with mainly teenagers and people that really don't care and don't value their customers because they are owned and funded by the government. Sad to see all the trash and waste that comes in and out of here.
  • One of best water parks are located inside. Fishing and relaxing. Summer vacations..
  • Well maintained. Eagles year round. Good hiking trails. Cafe for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Wine and beer. Meadows for Bocce ball, horseshoe pits, playgrounds, really active camp host and shell boat training.
  • Great place to camp. Big fish if you know how to catch them
