We didn't camp, but did fish from several locations within the park. The place is sparkling clean and the staff was quick to answer questions. We'll be back.

This campground was beautiful. We stayed on a waterfront site on the first loop. Great water views and the place was empty. Some of the sites were set up weird because they are sites within sites. Stick to the first loop on the right and...More

Yurts overlook the water. It's down hill but just a short walk up from the shore after being out on the lake. Longer walk down from the car with the kayaks to the Yurts. They have carts though.
