A definite big party going on the river and on the shore also at this resort with tons of people everywhere.. from tubers, rafters, canoers, you name it water crafts everywhere. If partying is your thing this is the place to be seen

Very fun place with a convenience store built in and little cabins for rent if you need them. When the campground is busy, it's super loud even on the "quiet" side. Overall a very friendly staff and a good place. I'd go back.
