A relaxing place to just get away, but still close enough to town if you forget supplies. I agree with others...the lake is small and, overall, I would say this is a better summer spot than any other season. Be wary of the raccoons, especially if tent camping. The staff is great, but the shower and bathroom facilities could use a facelift.

Stayed here in our motor home when we arrived in this area 6 years ago. We stayed in our motorhome. The restrooms are very clean. The hot spring is great. The park rangers are friendly and helpful.

We have our annual company camping happening here and it's the ideal spot. We rent all the cabins for three days. Staff and their families can hike,,,take out the row boats, swim. fish, play bocce, badminton, board games or whatever. Everyone gets to do what they want. A huge ramada covers the area where tables hold coolers, beverages, snacks, deserts, & fruit, while others hold optional amusements. Always a group playing cards at a fewtables. A large grill accommodates cooking for the masses. Night time finds large numbers of folks wrapped in blankets around the fire, roasting marshmallows, telling stories, and singing. Great, great place for a group to gather!

i have stayed in the cabins. Its like a large living room with beds and electricity.
Heading back up this weekend to celebrate the 4 of July with family.
Also has a nice little Natural hot tub on the premises. Showers on site.
2 years ago when i was there we had a visitor (racoon) and I called him "Rocky".
Cant wait to get into the hot tub.
