Then, I decided not to pay for bad and uneditable dinners. Waiter and manager had to decide. Actually, we won't be back. They really need a chef and a cook without much business ends up with stale bad food. Not recommended.

You have to pay to enter the area but it is worth the $6. Picnic areas, beaches, boat ramps trails, cabins. Lots of parking at boat ramps. Great place to camp and have a fun weekend.

We toured the entire recreation area and were impressed by the variety of activities available. Having a boat is essential to many of them but there were plenty of land based recreational opportunities as well.
