The facilities were great the scenery was peaceful and calm and the campers were respectful and courteous. The check-in staff was friendly and helpful and the office store had pretty much all the bare necessities needed to enjoy a wonderful weekend in the woods and then some. The ATV trails are right on the main road and are easily accessible from the campground. Would definitely come back again next time with more friends and family to enjoy all of the great things to do around the area.
Beautiful place, but very few sites with electric, and no 30 Amp service for medium to larger trailers or RVs. The outlets were 120v household 20 Amp plugs that wouldn't hold the plug in and was constantly tripping with just an ac running. The park itself is clean and scenic. Staff is nice and there is a boat ramp. It lacks a beach to swim if that's your thing, but if you don't mind walking on rocks to get into the deeper water it's fine. Nice place to get away.
