Beautiful lake front sites

Several of the sites have great views of the lake, when filled with water. Can have some road noise. Beautiful facilities and areas to explore.

Small sites rude staff

Not my favorite place to camp and I have camped almost every single weekend so far. The lady ranger with grey hair at the front destroyed this vacation. Not being able to have three cars was annoying and the sites are very small. The noise from the highway is like living in a big city.
