Great place to take the family and relax, you can rent a boat, go fishing and swimming. Great for a family barbecue. They have a concession stand too.

My wife, daughter, and I had a wonderful time at this park. The beach is beautiful and was not at all crowded, particularly during the week. We stayed in one of the cabins, and it was clean and well-maintained. The showers were great, too - hot water, and the staff checked them three times a day. I found every staff member I interacted with to be friendly, enthusiastic, and positive. It was a great trip!
