“Great Outdoors for Camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Great place to camp, if you like the outdoors. Most sites are treed and relatively private. We took 2 of the trails and found them very educational (highly recommend picking up the associated guide books). Yes there's mosquitoes, but it's an outdoors camp not a commercial campsite.

“Just okay!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

A little off the beaten track, which can be a huge plus -- but not in this case. Camping, swimming and day use areas are all rather mediocre. Locals seem to use it as their own private hang out, which can be rather disconcerting for other visitors.

“Great place to camp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The only negative thing I have to say about this place is there are a lot of mosquitos! There is a lot of swamp around the park and in the park, so bring your mosquito spray! The beach is large and fun to hang out at.
