    This is a worth while place to go. Many complain about the $5 per person fee, but that isn't really expensive considering the beauty of the place. You can bring your own food and drinks (no alcohol). The water temp is 72, year round, and...More

    unfortunately I feel the same way they charge an arm and leg to get in and they stripped away best part of the swing area, my only positive thing to say is nice camp ground and great for kayaks not good for us swimmers.
