We came here to ride our bikes but it was a very HOT day :) in October and I had a major headache already. Hubby did ride a short distance but the trails are definitely narrow and more for mt. biking! Lovely lake and it appeared that the campers were very happy to be here.

We don't like to camp anywhere else. Friendly staff, quiet, clean, has water, electric and sewer set up for our camper. Close to public bathrooms and hot showers, love hearing the geese in the morning. Walking trails are nice. We haven't rented anything yet but they have a little marina where you can rent canoes, paddle boats and kayaks. Maybe... More

Very nice people, secluded campground. Only problem- there is no entry gate or any way of keeping people from driving in during the early morning hours and driving around the campground. This woke us up almost every morning at 5 am. Loud vehicles or quiet vehicles playing loud music at 5 am. :( We don't sleep very late, but were... More

There are several paths that were incredibly quiet (didn't see on other person on two different trips out) that you can hike! The dam is pretty cool as well, and is something you can get to via hike. I'd recommend taking one of the trails that are further away from the lake!

My daughter and I drove down here specifically to do some hiking and walk the trails. We chose one trail and started walking. The further in the forest we went, the quieter it got. It was so peaceful and relaxing, we loved it so much. We don't know how long or far far the trail went, but we walked about... More

Nice sweet spot with pier and some camp sites. Sweet little camp store is open sometimes for candy bars, marshmallows, etc... Great spot for a quiet canoe paddle.

Unfortunately the family cabin was rundown and not maintained. Looks like a lack of funding. Had hoped to take grandchildren swimming but the swim area had been dismantled due to a overabundance of geese and there poop. The rest of the lake shoreline had weeds and moss. Disappointing and in need of attention. The attendants were nice and did the... More

Location and accommodations were good for camping. Trails for hiking are good. Fishing is also good I would not swim to much weeds and alge in the water
