  • We really enjoyed staying here, sites are paved and were well maintained. The park hosts while we were there were always driving around tidying up. Many spots to put your kayak in, miles of paved roads within the park to bike or walk. Beautiful beach and marina area. A little bit of everything for everyone. Big plus...a bald eagle flew directly over us while we were kayaking!
  • We stayed in a rustic campsite. Very private and beautifully maintained! Fresh water nearby, friendly staff and very quiet. Some campers may be out off by the pit toilets, and note there are no showers if that is important to you. Nearby lake has a lovely little beach, picnic areas, and powered and non powered boat rentals. We shall return!
