  • Speaking as someone who has chosen to work here for my third summer, commuting 90 miles each workday, to do so: " I love this place!" The staff is awesome, very helpful, and goes beyond duty to help boaters, fishermen , swimmers, campers and general visitors have an excellent adventure. I enjoy the geology, cloudscapes and wildlife of the area. Second only to the interesting folks who actually turn off the highway to spend some time here.
  • Beautiful place...water was clear and calm...good fishing too.
