Made last minute reservations 2 days prior, arrived around 10pm and GF&P even helped light up the site for me to back in. Clean grounds, good people, always love the full hookups, close to towns for shopping and sight seeing, bit crowded but our site was spacious. Trails, beach, playgrounds very nice and our dogs were happy too. Very quiet during quiet time, enjoyed very much.

Small beach line, but well worth a visit. Public boat ramp with dock and plenty of room for the kids to play.
