Great scenery and boat rentals was awesome. Roads could use a little repairing, but overall good place to fish, swim, boat and camp out.

Location was great. Easy to find. Most of the tent sites were at a slight slant but not bad enough to ruin our trip. Bathrooms and showers were clean enough. The lake and swimming area was beautiful.
