    Love it. Always something new to do here. Everything from biking to hiking to canoeing to swimming to camping to anything you can think of.

    spent 2 nights tent camping. The group site was perfect for a group of people wanting to be slightly separated from the masses. Sites were clean, with electricity and water, and shower houses were clean with SUPER hot water, which was nice after a day riding and hiking the abundance of trails that intermingle the campsite. What we appreciated more than anything was the host presence. They were there, riding around, but did not interfere and did not give off the mandatory "lights out and silence" after 10pm. No one was loud or out of control, and they did not make us feel that we were under constant surveillance. we were able to sit around our fire and responsibly converse, in the quasi isolated group site without the feeling we were going to be scolded. there were children still out riding bicycles and familys walking the paved circle into the evening without any problems. Dry wood is available on site at a walk up shed for 5 dollar donation into drop tube, so its available all times of day. Great facility overall!

    Fantastic place to camp. Every time I go there, there's something new. They ( like the description said) have many amenities. They also play concerts from time to time at its amphitheater. Also you can fish at the camps lake on boat or by land. There is a small craft boat launch but no engines if I recall correctly.
