  • 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! However, the beach area and river could really use a cleaning up! The park service cleaning department should make this a better place for family's!
