Wonderful spot -- where almost every camp site is lakeside! Each site is equipped with a fire ring, picnic table and parking. During the summer this is a popular spot, with lots of families. I went in the Fall (October) and it was practically empty as the services had terminated. Still just so lovely -- temp drops at night and the water was too cold for swimming (but in warmer temps, this is a lovely lake swim). Wonderful spot.
