  • A wonderful, peaceful and natural place to spend time with family. The park is well maintained and full of outdoor trails, swimming and a few playgrounds. I'll be back again as soon as I can do so. I'd love to visit in the fall to see the colors.
  • The campgrounds are great and are reasonably priced. We've stayed at both whispering pines and white oak campgrounds. Hookups vary by campground so look into which campground you are booking to make sure you get what you need. They have everything from no hookups to water and electric. None have sewer, but they do have dump stations. The beach is nice and the water seems clean. The water was pretty cold when we were here in June, but by August was much better. The rental boats are reasonably priced as well. Attached is a picture of the beach from the middle of the lake.
