Our site was in the North Campground, and we didn’t have hookups, we were very pleased with site size and privacy. It was also a nice area to go for walks, runs and bike rides on the trails nearby. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. We also really enjoyed the river beach area which was just a short walk from our campsite. We did head over to the south campground for a day at the beach (sandy beach!!) and it was a very windy day which resulted in quite a bit of waves! But we did rent a kayak (very reasonable pricing!) for our son, which he loved. A beautiful spot and we had great weather. We will definitely be back!
Best place to camp with family. We camped on south campground and loved it! Plenty of space with privacy. Peaceful and kids can explore the woods. The lake is right down the hill from our camp site so that was nice. Plan ahead for this place gets pack and full fast. Will be going again.
