Report: We just returned yesterday from a week-long getaway to this park. We brought our kayaks along, and had some very relaxing paddles on the reservoir. We love the fact that the campsites are not spaced so tightly next to each other. It was a most relaxing week; and we appreciate the help from the lady in the office (as we borrowed her hose), as well as the caretaker, who kept the grounds immaculate. We must say....the Sage Rats were amusing at times, even tho they are hole diggers!!!
