This is a nice park right on the water with a beach. The views are very nice, and there are plenty of birds.

This campground is mostly used by RVs, and the tent sites are not tucked away in trees so the lights at night were a bit bright, but the access to the lake front was wonderful. There is a nice beach and a path to walk...More
