This is the first time I've ever been to this park and all I can say is AWESOME !!! They have a very cool water obstacle course in the lake, fishing, canoeing, cabins to rent, an in ground swimming pool, giant bouncy pillow and more. We'll most certainly go back. I give this place 5 out of 5 stars. It's definitely worth your while to go there.

We've been twice with a group of friends and even though our latest trip got rained out it's a great campground. All the facilities, even portable ones are clean, so much for the kids to do and lovely camp sites on the lake. I expect our family will make this an annual destination.
