Spent another 3 nights here and love this place. It's quiet. Sites are perfectly maintained. It's managed by a private contractor and the people love their job and the park. There was a campfire ban so that part was disappointing. But the beach was so...More

The park is really good with very nice camp sites. We were there in holiday times and were amazed that it wasn't booked out. There are several walkways through the forest to the beautiful lake with snow covered mountains in the distance. There is a...More

ATV's aren't allowed in the park area and it isn't suitable anyway. we went in on a motorbike and got moaned at for that. But call and check as there may be some routes in the surrounding area.
