Our group came to the park to bird watch during migration. It was a rainy day but the birds were singing away. The lake had plenty of fishers and no ducks. We looked for a trash can which were not obvious.

I have been here twice a year for the past several yrs for scrapbooking. The only thing is their Wi-Fi is not so great but getting there. They are so great with getting us all we need. The prices are also reasonable.

Beautiful setting! Nature at its finest. However the Lodge and cabins are lacking. Our cabin ended up with a busted water heater the first day of our trip. The whole kitchen was a lake, sopping towels everywhere. They had no open Rooms or cabins to...More

Park area is kept very clean. There are plenty of places to picnic, fish, and swim. The lodge offers day time conference rooms. The Nature Center offers daily activities. Military gets a discount on Camping.
