We stayed at this resort the week after July 4th to attend a family reunion. We had the opportunity to stay in the old hotel section and the new "horseshoe" section. The old section of the hotel has small rooms which can feel a bit cramped at times, the new rooms in the horseshoe section of the hotel are quite spacious and have a nicer feel to them.
The amenities on site are excellent. A gift shop, a cafe, and a restaurant. We found the gift shop helpful for some small items we left at home. The cafe was perfect for sandwiches at lunch, or ice cream as a snack. The onsite restaurant has both a buffet and menu items to order from, we found the buffet to be overpriced unless you are REALLY hungry. Often times the buffet contained items you could order directly from the menu... so if you take a gander at the buffet and like the look of the meatloaf, order from the menu for a few bucks cheaper. For breakfast, the buffet seemed to be better priced along with the menu items.
As for activities, we spent most of our days relaxing on the beach or under the shade of the nearby trees. There are also great hiking trails all around the park to explore. The nearby town has anything that civilization can provide.
Overall a nice place and one that my family returns to year after year for our reunion.
