“Great park, great price”

Stayed in site 79 which is a large level back in on the point. Water on three sides of the site was awesome! Level paved site with 30amp electric. It was big enough to back our 29 foot fifth wheel and leave it hooked up to the truck. Park is nicely maintained and very quiet. Only about 5 miles of the main freeway with good roads to the park and well maintained roads and tree clearance. Camp host was helpful and friendly. Total price was $20. Plenty or well maintained walking/bike trails in the park. Didn't use the on site restrooms so I can't render an opinion on them. 

“Great off season”

Stopped here on a whim.  Favorite spot so far.  Huge park, beautiful views, great fishing, stay away during summer it crazy packed.

“Beautiful Well Kept Park”

Lovely park with many large sites.  Some waterfront and water view sites.  We were in a Class A RV so we did not use bathrooms or showers.  The park is very level and is a great place for bicycling.  I booked our site #16 several weeks in advance and was so excited that I was able to reserve a water view spot.  When we arrived at the site we were very disappointed to find that the electricity did not work at the site.  The camp host reassigned us to a site that had no view of the lake.  It really seemed to not bother the camp host or the park ranger who came to question us about not having a reservation for the reassigned site.

“Great place.”

We camp here several times a year. One of our favorite places. 
Pros: paved level spots. Big spots. Bike trail. The lake. Normally quiet.  Cons: pit toliets on the loops, main bath house needs remodeled. State jacks up price during holidays.
Overall four and a half stars.
