Love hiking, camping and swimming. Never too crowded. State Park employees are always very helpful. We just got a boat and love to launch there.

We camped here for a weekend in our tent. The camp ground is very nice and lake is beautiful. We stayed at campsite 4. Was close to the restroom..but lacking any shade. The showers were disgusting. Dirt amd hair were just matted to the floor.
