Great place for a family day out. Loads of picnic tables, and BBQ facilities. Also toilet facilities. Great beach area and lake water is good for swimming. Also has children's play area.

We went with our camper and stayed at Pinegrove section a couple of weeks ago. I believe the lot was #56 and we liked it. Not too far from the comfort station. This campground is well maintained and I saw patrol vehicles quiet often. Staff...More
