Report: We stopped at this park because the brochure we picked up describing it said there was swimming. It was a very hot and humid day when we got there and were really wanting to take a swim to cool off. When we pulled into the park there was no one at the entrance. We went ahead and paid for the night at the gate then when we drove in we saw signs of "No Swimming". There was not a beach or a pool in sight. We drove through the entire park without seeing any areas for swimming. We stayed the night simply because it was after 5:00 and we were hot, tired, and hungry. We were very disappointed with the park simply because of false advertisement.
