Park is very clean. Great to see families enjoying the great outdoors from bbq, bon fires, bike riding, fishing and swimming. Love just floating at the sand bar.

Park is nearby, so I have never stayed overnight, but the beach is great and they are adding another boat ramp and refurbishing the existing ramp. Very quiet in the fall.
