NOBODY was swimming. There were 2 guys kayaking. A few people were at one of the picnic sites. They have a couple of bathrooms. We didn't see everything, but we did drive around a bit. Still a nice place to hang out I suppose.

Entrance from Rt. 30 is on dangerous curve of busy highway, very narrow roads, NO camping other than primitive. Very little parking where picnic tables and gazebo are situated. Very RV / motorhome unfriendly. Skip this one!
