Canoe-in shoe-in

How would you like to camp on your own private island? Reserve the single canoe-in site and make your dreams come true! We had such an excellent time hanging out on our little island and using it as a home base for combined canoeing and hiking day trips. You should be comfortable in a canoe before you commit to this, as it's a decent distance to paddle from the dock to the site, and you'll be loaded with gear. The paddling can also get pretty tough when the wind picks up, especially on the open stretches of the lake.

The park is beautiful and large, and the canoe-in site is spacious and very pleasant. There's some noise from speedboats and fishing boats during the day, but you get the lake to yourself once the sun sets and everyone else goes home. The mosquitoes were not bad on the island, though there were some annoying flies in the afternoons.

Our only disappointment was that there were no good swimming options from the island itself. Too many reeds, and the boat dock is in a shallow mucky area. We had better luck paddling to other spots to swim.
