  • This is a lovely quiet, place to visit. We notice that they don't allow boats with loud engines on the lake and it makes it a really pleasant reason to visit. It's picturesque, and clean too.  more »
  • The lake is peaceful, bright blue, and lovely ; The park is clean and tidy. The beach is so pretty. Store is nice. Love to kayak here.  more »
  • Camp grounds are great! Clean bathrooms! Beautiful lake! But the noise curfew should be 10pm not 9pm. Had to turn music off at 9pm. Had to be quiet. Was supposed to be a birthday party weekend. This kinda of cut it short for us.
  • What a beautiful place to bring your family and just to get away from the city. Bring your boat, friends and family and swimming trunks. On the way there you can sure you will see tons of scenery. Now depending on the time you can it an be really packed and hard to find parking so choose wisely the time you come. The restrooms were clean and the park is really kept up and there is a small market inside of the park in case you forgot anything (its far away from stores) so make sure to pack tjr essentials. Bring your family she friends and you won't be disappointed.
