  1. Deborah F. says:

    This is a beautiful park. There are large campsites with electric and water. A few toilet facilities throughout the park. A nice, modern, clean and well equipped toilet, bath and laundry facility. Plenty of trails to hike and the park has many fun activities and events each month. Huge playground for kids, multiple picnic places and great for canoes and bird watching. The host and staff were very nice. We plan to have a group gathering next year!
