The area is beautiful. We came looking for moose and enjoyed a picnic at the lake near the campground and some nice conversation with the staff. It's quiet, clean and family oriented. There is a playground for the kids to burn off some energy too!

It's just pretty, out in the country, not crowded and clean. The air is fresh. Nice picnic area available. Out house type restrooms only. This isn't the city!
