  • Nice place for boating, swimming or canoeing. A nice picnic area as well. A nice family spot for all ages. Swim beach is nice. And the grounds of all the area was all picked up, clean and well maintained. The swim area was very nice. And people respected each other.
  • We come here every summer for 2 weeks. Level concrete pads. Large grassy sites. Excellent biking and walking trails. Wonderful reservoir and Pelican Wharf Pub with great music venue.
