This is a first come, first in campground, supposedly. But because that rule isn’t being followed, sites can be hard to obtain here for the average traveler. There are a few trailers set up as seasonals in slots marked as a 9 day maximum stay. We were also made aware of locals that come in, rope off a site for a weekend stay several days ahead of time. Since there are only 50 sites in the more desired section west of Lakeshore Drive with just 26 of them being the much coveted waterfront sites you can see why spaces are hard to come by, at least during the Summer months. About half of these sites could comfortably take a big rig & all but 1 site has 50 amp with water hookups.

Waterfront sites in the newer section are super sweet. Especially for big rigs.

There is a smaller camping area east of Lakeshore Drive,  it amounts to little more than an open field with electric & water hookups. This section can easily accommodate big rigs but one should check the electrical box first for amperage as there are a variety of sites here ranging from 30 amps with & without water hookups, & 50 amp with water sites.

Each section has its own pit toilets but there is a modern bathhouse available with pay showers. The park has a sanitation station so if one has a “honey pot” it’s no big deal to shower in your rv with the occasional trip to dump. The campground has a really nice playground with a sitting area nearby for mom, dad or the grandparents. The beach is small but there is a much bigger stretch of beach just a few yards down the street.  If you’re lucky enough to get a waterfront site, you can take your four-legged child to run on your own little section of beach. (Just be sure to clean up after them please.) Each site has a table & firepit. Firewood can be purchased near the office. There’s also a walking/biking trail nearby that’ll take you into town.

If in the area we would stay here again but only if we could get a water site. The off water sites really don’t appeal to us & there are other options in this area that we like as well.
