  • We camp here often. Great location, short walk to the lake and state park. Good showers and bathrooms. Very large campground.

  • I went for a hike on the trails for 1/2 marathon training. The trails were all different terrain. Beautiful run/ hike! Will definitely go back. The camping sites do look great, however, I didn't camp. Had a great time doing push ups with this great group of guys I ran into on my run. It was by far my favorite run I have ever done!
