Drive-in camp sites, very generous size compare to others. We could fit in 2 tents (6 people max per site) plus plenty of room left. Lots of privacy between campsites. Many have their own trail leading to river side. Boat launch area has a number of water activities offered. No alcohol/smoking allowed.
Gorgeous views, large camp sites, refreshing lake. The toilets are compost toilets tho, not flushing, which I personally didn't mind using but in this past weekend's heat they did get pretty stinky. There was no wood fires aloud nor any use of the fire pits (which were pretty small), due to concern of forest fire safety. That was a little disappointing. Our site did have a grill however, which we were able to use with charcoal. No swimming aloud due to lack of life guards but boating, canoeing and fishing were all permitted which was great. The boaters were a lil rude to the fisherman that were on foot so I'd suggest bringing a boat, canoe, or kayak if you're going to fish. Overall, great place for a camping trip. Had an awesome time.
