Recently the park got a "facelift", updated electrical, and water supply, fresh mulch at sites , cleared some trees making it easier for the larger RV's. Quiet for the most part, except early rising fishermen, and loud boats!

We enjoy the boat ride here but it has never been open for the past few visits. We enjoy the short walks.
