We stayed for 3 nights in summer of 2016. Campground is very busy at this time of year. All campsites are within walking distance to the beach area, so you don't have to be on on the few lakeside sites to enjoy the sunset or...More

We don't camp, but we visit this park for the gorgeous beach, complete with dunes and very deep water in the swimming area.

We absolutely loved our stay. The facilities were clean. We didn't have any issue with noise other than some traffic from the main two lane road.

Hello, this maybe a silly question but I'm staying in a tent on site 38 this summer. I know the sites have electricity but can I just bring a regular household 50 foot electric cord? Or do I need to get an adapter and the cord? Oh, also what does 20/30 amps mean?

Are campsites 32-38 good sites? Can you see the water from any of these sites? What's the weather like in June?

Not so much any more. We used to get 38, and ten years ago we could see the water, but it has grown up so that the view is blocked. Still, it is a nice site.
