Clean park and relaxed environment

There was a beautiful lake by the campground. The sites were clean. You have to take your garbage to the dumpsters when leaving. The bathroom and shower was awesome. There was an amazing bike trail that went along the water.

Nice camp with hook ups

Spent one night here. Well filled campground on a Saturday night. Enough space to navigate an RV. Spots are fairly close to one another, but not so close as to be bothersome. Electric and water hook up included. Lady restrooms couldn’t be locked.

Great proximity to the water and tons of fireflies…
