First to Review
First choice of my camping season each summer. Campground is right on the lake with walking trails. Added bonus is the campground is next to the boat launch. Lakeshore store and Pup is across the street for date night with great food and atmosphere! Kayaking is a must each morning before the winds kick in around 10am. The water is glass before that! Been camping here for 23 years straight each summer! Love this piece of heaven 😍
