  • Great place to stay right off the highway. The lake is beautiful. The park is clean. The park hosts are fabulous. This is a great place for families. That being said, it can be chaotic and loud on weekends and holidays. There are non-reservable sites available most of the time. You can also reserve sites. Almost all the sites have electricity... But only a handful have water. There is water on site at the large easy dump station area. The town basically shuts down after labor day until memorial day. Good luck trying to find good food. The cabin coffee shop is good.
  • Very well kept grounds. Some spots not level so make sure you have plenty of blocks. Nice 2 lane dump station. Didn't personally use the bathrooms/showers but heard they were nice and clean too. About a 2 mile walk to the downtown area if you like to walk/run/bike. Short walk to the public beach from the back side of the campground.
