Had a very nice stay in one of the Yurts there. They are very convenient to the restroom. There is a lake with a swimming area. There is also boating and fishing too in the lake. There are trails around the lake to hike.

Kayaking @Tuscarora State Park Lake is very inexpensive and quite enjoyable at a price of $13.00 per hour per person.The Lake is quite scenic with a backdrop of a very nice mountain.
