Payed to stay overnight..the next day a ranger wok us up to say we were in violation . He was nice. Very nice actually but it would helped to have entrance blocked and signs up saying that closed for season so no overnights. No signs anywhere. And you still have a place with envelopes for money and a place to accept money for staying... nothing saying anything about closed and so on. And i'm from out of town so kinda frustrating. Would have loved it otherwise.

Great place for camping or even for a day use. Wether you are interested or not into camping, you can do lots of things with your kids here. Hiking here is gorgeous! Restrooms could be better. Some places should be maintained better.

It was a great place for camping. You get free swimming passes to swim in the lake. When we went it was not crowded at all. Lots of hiking trails. Did see a black bear while hiking which was great. Play ground could be updated it was outdated. Everyone was super friendly.

Fun for the whole family! The staff at the beach area could have better customer service skills, but no biggie. Restrooms are often disgusting... just wear shoes. I like that they offer nature "classes" (showcases may be the better term) for kids. Overall safe environment, but doors should be kept locked and valuables up when camping. No need for extreme measures, just common sense when in a public place. There's the occasional 'rough neck brawl' but nothing too extreme and really par for the course. Overall, I love that we have this in our area!
