          The campground has designated camping areas, many of the sites are wooded and they all have bear boxes. I didn't look closely to see if trees would accommodate a hammock, but they looked substantial.

          Why did we have to pay 45$ to finally get into the park and can't do a thing? We can only wade in the water, can't even jump feet first right off the side wall. This place has gone down hill and you took everything fun about this place. Very upset and very unsatified. Drove over 2 hours for this....

          unfortunately I feel the same way they charge an arm and leg to get in and they stripped away best part of the swing area, my only positive thing to say is nice camp ground and great for kayaks not good for us swimmers.
