We use tents to camp with our five children. The lots are very well used, and the park does minimal maintenance to them. If you're planning to stay in a tent, online reservations are hit and miss whether or not your site will have to be cleared of excessive leaves, sticks and other natural debris. Also, it is best to find a site close to the beach area so you have the large shower facility with bathrooms; our family had a nice sized bathroom facility near our site (#453) but there were only two shower stalls inside each bath and they are so outdated people have to be under 5 ft tall to fit under the shower heads! You should also keep in mind the park hosts a triathlon during the 4th weekend (at least in 2013!) and the beach is roped off for the majority of that day. The athletes swim around the bay of Duck Lake & then bike 25 miles outside of the park, but then return to run a 7 mile course through the campsite! We stayed through Monday, so this wasn't an inconvenience for us, but the people who had a camper trailer across the way had an extremely difficult time breaking camp because they wanted to leave between 10 and 11 that morning and this was the time the runners were using the paved street! Runners come the opposite direction of the one way traffic, so our neighbors had to time it right to: drive around and hook their vehicle to their trailer, and then wait for a break in the running packs to drive out of the campground (as they drove, runners came out of the woods causing them to have to cut through several unoccupied camp lots to get around to the exit roadway.) Other than these nuisances, the park itself is very picturesque and accommodating. Good luck picking your camp sites!
