Clean and organized well

Plenty of site space, staff is very friendly and welcoming. No problem parking 40’ fifth wheel. Atmosphere is friendly and other campers wave when you see them.

Good Campground

Most sites seem good (from a tent-car camper perspective) / music on Friday nights/ pancake breakfast on Saturday / kayak launch sites / ice cream$2 at the store.  The camp has its own beach, but floats / kayaks are not allowed.

Great campsites.

Kids loved the choices of sports to play while we were there! Basketball and volleyball we big hits. We loved the beach. Boys loved fishing while my daughter and I laid in our hammocks and read. We took several hikes. The nature center was great. So much to see and do there!
