Still a Great Place to Stay

Upgraded to a camper this year! Site 23 was shorter than expected which upped the parking challenge but squeezed in okay. Had a great time - large area to spread gear out in, easy walk to semi-private cove on lake. AWESOME for birding - Bald Eagles 🦅, Pelicans, woodpeckers, chickadees & ravens…

Hidden Gem!

Great, large sites that are well maintained. Sites are roughly 100 yards from the lake...Saw a Bald Eagle dive and grab a fish...Great fishing..Not so great for swimming. Opaque, green water from tall grass. A bit grimy..Great spot over all.
