With a hurricane approaching we were able to sneak in for Labor Day Weekend '17 due to last minute cancellations. Really enjoyed our 1 week stay. Huge site(111), w/full hook-ups and great view of lake. Will definitely return.

Yes, dogs are allowed in the park - they must be on leash !! I am not sure if the dogs are allowed in the swimming area.
