The walk in sites are nice, and right on the lake. They are usually quiet, and are away from the camper crowd. Well maintained, and the camp hosts are super friendly. The road noise is the only serious downfall. As long as you don't visit...More

We don't have a boat but it's still a great place to rest and relax. You can boat or camp here and it's close to town if you need anything. The camping spots are mostly in the trees and very flat and shady.

We stayed one night while traveling through. The campground was well maintained as well as the beach and marina area. Campsites ranged from poor to excellent. The outer and further ring were in better shape (newer, cleaner and more level) than the first ring, which...More

Had a great time camping with family for a week here. The showers were very clean the whole time we were there and always had hot water! I would suggest choosing a site on the outer roads, those were level and made of concrete. We...More

I have only been once, but I had a nice picnic on the picnic tables. I did not really notice much about the park. I was in and out for a quick lunch and that is it. Ha.

Most of the sites are set up for motor homes so they are paved and have water and elec. They are in the trees so they are shady and nice. For pictures I would ask the state or federal parks offices. Sorry!
