One of the nicest family campgrounds in the state and if the full RV hookups were expanded, or even just offer more electric hookups, the RVers will make it profitable and sustaining. One or two shower/bath houses are needed as well for tent and small trailer campers. I hope that will happen soon.

Sites have electric. No shower house. Pit toilets. Nice quiet campground on a beautiful lake. Going back for a second stay. Firewood sold at the camp office, which has limited hours.
