  • We came here to see the town of Spectre just as a funny thing to do nothing really serious and when we got out there what we thought was going to be a 10-minute stay turned into a 2-hour stay because it was beautiful they had a nice benches where you could just sit in the swing and enjoy the view and when the wind blew it was comfortable coming off the water there is a ton of goats when we came in we seen the signs to watch out for the goats and we thought it was for the movie set that was abandoned here and when we turn the corner we seem 30 goats it was just a fun cherry on top of the day. It's $3 a person to get in and they had really nice little camping spots where you can pay $10 a person we completely plan on making time to come out and camp
  • It's a great place to take the kids fishing. They also have a play ground. You can rent the pavilion with picnic tables and they have a boat ramp. It's very clean and new bathrooms. They shot the movie Big Fish there and the old town is still there. They are always trying to improve the grounds for a better experience. Love it...
