Beautiful park in the town of Marathon. Facilities are great, clean, quiet. The trail around the park has been dressed up with fairy houses, doors and random decorations - very inviting. The beach is beautiful.

Run by the city of Marathon. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. Non electrical and water hookup was approx $21 US. About 10 Tent spacesand 10 camper /RV home spaces. Quiet, comfortable and a great view of the stars at night.
