The Park Is always clean ! My kids love the place and my husband and I usually have an interesting conversation or two with other down to Earth parents when we go. Its always refreshing to go get back in touch with some nature (ehhhmmm ... And get everyone off the Wifi / device for a moment)
Pros: Convenient location Affordable Entry Fee Accessable facilities and common areas
Cons: Campground is almost always full! Bathhouse only in campgrounds/ only for campers (Hey, it'd be nice to have a quick rinse after a work out in the park or after taking the boat out)
