  • I had an amazing time here. We camped in a tent. And when the weather was really bad we were fortunate enough to get a cabin. When we were there the beach was closed because of how high the water was. The stairs were covered part way up. Rain or shine, it's the best vacation I've had in years. Memories I'll never forgot. My daughter and son in law live up by there. It was so wonderful to spend time with them. They took us around to some amazing places there. I had the best pizza of my life up there. I'd go back in a heartbeat. I. fell in love with this place. Go spend time there. You won't be sorry.❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
  • Rented the bigger cabin, which was spacious. The park was clean and views are beautiful. There is no beach access due to high water levels. For me, the skunks were the big problem! They live very near the large cabin, and every night they walked all around the campsites. They are laid back skunks, but made me very uncomfortable.
