Have always enjoy this place, brings back a lot of memories of my childhood. Took swimming lessons there when I was really young. Nice place for camping and to do a lot of other outdoor activities. Beautiful hiking trails and just so much more.
Nice hiking trails. The owners of the pool and camping area really friendly, helpful, and do their very best to be accommodating! They get 5 stars for me!
