Really enjoyed this park. Nice wooded campground with a good campsite (BO22) on the water. Bathhouse was clean and everything works. Had a great meal at the lodge. Try to make it for Prime Rib night. Wow..

The blue, yellow, and red trails are well cleared and easy to hike. The pool at the lodge (for guests or those with slips) was fantastic.

Daniella's has a varied menu and is open 7 days a week breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their shining star is the Sunday Brunch Buffet which is very reasonably priced and includes your drink. They also have daily specials.
