Just a wonderful place in every season to enjoy the outdoors. The lake in summer is one of the few places besides Lake Er Actually I hope it stays a secret!

We enjoyed the park and the area, but the cabin we rented, while it had a really nice layout and location, was full of cobwebs, spiders and worst of all, smelled like a smoker had lived there for decades. Not pleasant.

I know this is a month later but yes there are a couple of marinas on the lake that rent boats by the hour or the day.
I read a review from 2013 that said the campground bathrooms leave alot to be desired. We have pop-up and need clean, modern toilet facilities and showers.

It depends on how much you want to spend. I stayed at Bayshore and it is a very nice facility with an outdoor pool and lots to do for children and grown-ups. Clean facilities too. I also stayed at one of the Pymatuning... More
