Convenient beachside location with good amenities and courteous staff. We stayed in the RV village for 2 nights and had a memorable stay. Most of the sites are wooded, have shade, and ours happened to have full hookups. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Had a great couple of days here staying in the RV site. Loved the lake and beach. But the highlight has to be the nature, including being joined by Cinammon the local bear for dinner! Would definitely recommend staying here.
