We enjoyed our stay and the park didn't fail. Great campsite, amenities (showers, clean bathrooms, great staff). The kids loved it and our camping neighbors were very social.

Well maintained park with boardwalks. It is not overly manicured so it feels very natural. It is usually quiet, but can get packed on the holidays. Go and enjoy!
