  • Really nice place. Quiet, great for just relaxing, kids can play without the worry of traffic, and there's a lake for fishing. Lots of trees, good cover from direct sunlight if you want, and open areas if you need sun. Primitive camp sites to full hookup, and canine rental available. Highly recommended!
  • Fun camping. If you are going to go to this camp ground you have to wake up at 7:30 am 9 months in advance and reserve the spot that you want. The best camping spot is easily spot 14. It's also good for kids to ride their bikes around and swim.
