HUGE so we didn't get to see a lot of it in one weekend. Friendly staff for the most part. Campground is well maintained with clean bathrooms and plenty of space. We will be back.

This campground was exceptional. The view of the lake is gorgeous. The sites are very nice and most are shady. The restrooms are very clean.
