  • Great spot for the serious hiker ! Hiking trails are natural, unimproved through the woods. Lots of hills ! If you want to go to the waterfront, you need to hike 2 miles or have a vehicle available. Beautiful Lake, clean shady RV campsites with a bathhouse conveniently located to all the sites. Water and electrical hookups only. Dump station nearby. Very helpful and friendly camp staff.
  • Lake and beach area are beautiful. But the restrooms were terrible. There was no toilet paper in most of the stalls. And they were dirty. When we informed the staff they said it wasn't their responsibility. Two hours later it still wasn't taken care off. There were a lot of of lifeguards on duty but they never opened the slide in the lake until late in the afternoon. Of course all the kids went to do the slide. Can't blame them. But it resulted in a long wait time for them. The lifeguards just didn't seem to care.
