We stayed in one of their two Cedar Cabins. Campgrounds were well kept and plentiful. Lots of RV using the space. Staff we interacted with were helpful. Cabin itself could use a deep cleaning and maintenance, but it had everything it stated it would. AC worked well as did all appliances. The lot for the cabin seem larger then many... More

I go here every week and fish. I love it. Good outdoor experiences every time I go. I'd like to see some more trash clean ups as it collects a lot from the rivers, but it's a different experience every time I go. I fish on a boat there and enjoy it. A lot of wildlife to see and good... More

There is something for everyone here. Swimming, boating, sailing, ski jets, water skiing, bicycling, or hiking. How about camping? Facilities are first class. Campers even have trick or treating at Halloween. Are you a nature lover? Deer, herons, egrets, ducks, geese, hawks, turtles, and of course, the fish are jumping. One of my most favorite experiences was kayaking in the... More

we love to camp here but it's normally pretty crowded...we also love to boat on the lake..it's right down the road from us and we spend a lot of time here in the summer...water isn't the cleanest and the blue green algae is there most of the time but other than that, it's a nice place to boat, camp, hike...
