I have stayed at this hotel several times. It is very clean and rooms are spacious. Breakfast was good. The lady at the desk was very kind, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We got to stay in a cabin. Everything was within walking distance. The swimming area was perfect. The fishing was excellent the park personnel were friendly. Watch out for the fire ants. They are pretty aggressive here.

Read the reviews, decided to go, a quietish spot, but very little to do. For a day trip, a little disappointing. Very little apart from the lake.

Hi. Am visiting this place on June 18th weekend. Is this a good. Will the lake and water be muddy? Which is the best place for tent camping here(water and electricity). I would greatly appreciate if anyone can give pointers on this. I have researched all the website. They do not tel which is the best place to camp or do not see it in reviews too.

From what I could tell, all the improved camping was pretty exposed to the sun and wind. However, it was a pretty lake so you'll probably be fine, if not a little warm.
