Really enjoyed our 4 day trip here! Lots of really nice sites; pretty heavy RV:tent ratio, which I don't always like. If you're going to camp, then CAMP, not GLAMP;) There is a hiking trail to a small beach(with a playground nearby) or you can rent kayaks, canoes or paddle boards to enjoy on the beautiful lake. About a 10 minute or less drive into town for a couple great ice cream options; which is always a must on our trips! Highly recommend this park.
