A great scenic picnic area, or try renting a boat or canoe. The scenery is spectacular! Great to take the whole family to.

The area is beautiful. We came looking for moose and enjoyed a picnic at the lake near the campground and some nice conversation with the staff. It's quiet, clean and family oriented. There is a playground for the kids to burn off some energy too!
