I have never camped her but I have enjoyed bringing my children here to swim in the summer. I also take advantage of all the hiking trails on the state grounds. Very nice, very clean and a great place to go.

great place to hike for those not into climbing mountains, trails are wide and clear, plenty of different routes so that you can vary distances and routes, quit and never see motor bikes or 4 wheelers driving around so walking is safe
