Always a great place to get away and relax. Lots of campsites to choose from. Bathrooms have flush toilets, high tech.... LOL. The lake is beautiful and clean. Great trails and roads for ATV.

By far this is the most relaxing and pleasant camp grounds that I’ve been to. Great trails and enjoyed taking the tour through the mansion and the great beach to swim at.
