  • B.U.T.full. place to visit and or live
  • Even though part of the camping area was closed due to flooding, we still got a space that backed up to the lake. It was a gorgeous spot and the sunsets were breathtaking. Our visit was relaxing and we really didn't do much exploring. There is a lot of clean up going on from the tornado that came through in December. They do have several cabins on the lake that can be rented. They look really nice, but only saw the outside.
