Report: Great campground, friendly camp hosts, unfriendly day use camp host!! Be careful!!
Conditions: Bugs are EVERYWHERE!!!! Not too much shade, get there early to get the good sites. Prices are more expensive than listed on the web site, you also have to pay a day use fee that is not mentioned on the web site. Sort of a spendy place considering you're a ways from the water and the terrible bugs.
Water Availability: Water levels are way down and the beaches are mucky!
