so clean, swimming areas, picnic areas, clean restrooms, I take my two Papillons there to run and play. Trails and camper sites available. I do not live too far away and am thrilled to have a place like this to go to

No complaints but slightly isolated if you like to be near town & activities or places to eat. Vert Peaceful. Nice Staff. Edge of the Lake. Rules to comply with. Reminds you of an old fashioned camp back in the day!
