Cool place to stay and test out your boating skills

Great peninsula camping

Great little park with lake views, sandy swimming beach, hiking, boating, and state parks and forests nearby for even more recreation options. The campground is among the trees for great shade and so-so privacy. Some spots are lakeside (numbers 1 through 19), but all are very close to the water. There isn’t a shower in each loop, which can cause some congestion in the morning so plan ahead if possible. They have an amphitheater with ranger events throughout summer. Nice for day use also.
