  • Nice room in the Villas with a private screened porch. Good view of the fireworks show from the lawn. The bar had good eats and drinks. Played a round of golf as well, nice track but the greens were very slow.
  • Stayed at the campground, very nice. Easy to get in and set up. Lake was weedy in shallow areas, fishing wasn't good due to it being so hot. Would try again in spring/fall. Boat ramp access/parking good. Golf course is beautiful and tricky. Overall, a great stay.
