So fun!

This was a wonderful place to go fishing with the family! The park was well taken care of, and the bathrooms were very clean, anD stocked. I also really love the park rangers, the were so nice and gave the kids some smokey bear Frisby's That kept them occupied for the entire weekend!

Great for Groups

One of the best features about this site is that there are group sites, and they are reservable, making it great for large groups and family events. Other than that, it is a relatively basic campground, but it is also ADA accessible which makes it to where any one is able to enjoy this camp!
