Very good location. Multiple covered areas to rent all with modern bathrooms. Good play area for chilren; however, it is on a lake and children must be watched for alligators, snakes, and ticks. Great and many boat launches for all.

The ramp to Lake Harris is really nice. 5 boats can launch at once and lots of parking. Three ramps are deep water. There are facilities here, and boat dockage. There is also a facility for dining rental. Lighting improves safety as well.
