We visited for the first time and were on a time schedule. But we saw many families at the large beach area and the campsites looked to be very nice. Great playgrounds for the kids too!

$8 daily fee to get into the park, unless you have the Empire Pass. Great place to camp, fish, launch your boat from or have a cookout.

Costs 8$ to get in but worth every penny! Beautiful Sandy Beach, playground, and a nice walk. Dogs allowed on a leash. Bbq's, nice bathrooms with showers and a small convenience store/Cafe. Wonderful day out to the beach! Can swim when lifeguards are there.
