This is a very small but very well kept park. There are spots for campers, tents, frisbee golf, hiking, a boat launch, and at the top of the hill, a pioneer cemetery! Everyone was very friendly and the area was very clean.

Central dump stations, with 50 amp electric and water sites. Many spots in grass are too soft in wet weather for big rigs.

Great campgrounds. I remember as a kid this being a picnic park with just a couple of campsites up near the highway, but now it's 100% campground. Spent 5 nights in our 30' motorhome as we visited friends and relatives in the area. Spacious sites,...More
