  • Beautiful views, extremely quiet and cozy campsite. “Not a creature was stirring…” Clean bathrooms, very friendly campground staff.

  • Went there for a picnic. We were right next to the water. Lovely weather and view. Love the amenities! We have been camping there for years. Really liked all of the upgrades. We haven't been there in a while. Very pleased.
  • We've been here a couple of times, has different trails to pick from one is even paved. Has a newer playground that's great for the kiddos. The grills I've used were in good condition. We checked out the camp ground and normally state parks have really clean bathrooms for the campers, here I was a little surprised we ended up not booking a site because of it. Over all a great park though.
