  • I attend events here usually and it's always a good time! I've been to the campground years ago and it was nice, though it seems to have gotten nicer, I wouldn't know. The events like the Craft Classic and Cider Fest are fun though and definitely worth the price of entry. I've gone a few times now and will most likely attend more in the future. Beautiful park, so big too!
  • It's quite a nice area. The place is large with easy access to the beach. However since the park and pool has been closed down, there's not much to do and it's better to bring your own "fun." There's also a number of people who refused to go in the water because they found it dirty. Also there was a lot of poop from the birds that inhabit the park.
