January 22 Love the park! by Freq. visitor
We camp there regularly. The sites are tidey. The bathrooms are clean. Shower water is HOT! The kids are able to ride there bikes around the campgroud without worry. Everyone is friendly. We take our small boat on the lake and fish. we have a great time. The only thing I dont like is all the goose poop.
