    Great campground, very relaxing. Loved the waterfront camping, able to go kayaking anytime- spent hours exploring the large lake. Swimming and playground area for kids, waterfront trail, quiet campground site separate from day visitor area. Loved this park, will return again!

    Unique park offering resort-like stuff, yet affording a little peace and quiet on Juniper lake and it's humble campground.
