Very little if any bank fishing. Very poorly marked as to what's where. Dont waste your time. Camping is on top of each other in full sun at what looks to be the marina. Terrible.

This is close to my sister's farm, so we meet there to do some trail riding with our horses. The horse area seems updated with new electric and water hookups. We were there in December and it was a bit wet in the camp area....More
