    Great but...

    If you have more than two dogs, you are not welcome. I thought this strange for a campsite but it is true.

    We will be back!

    We camped here (boyfriend and dog) 2 weekends ago and we had a great time! the sights were clean and fairly private... I would have like more space between but at least we couldn't see right over to our neighbors sight. We had water front access as well as access to the other state parks including an AMAZING dog park that is a verbal command only so for the nippy unfriendly dogs this isn't the place. but for social dogs and owners (like us) we couldn't have asked for more! If it was camping alone for the score I'd dock it slightly because of the privacy and having to haul a charcoal covered bucket for our fire pit to and from the camp store which was kind of a bummer to do. All and all it was a fun time and we will be back!
