We liked the Lake there and the bike trail was across the road so that was nice. Hot showers didn't exist at comfort stations and not the cleanest over the week. We were on what I call a cul de sac and bathroom was in...More

Beach area is nice! Beautiful view! Yes for picnic tables! Washrooms are a little walk. No snack bar. Can't see why you can't BBQ
