We camped at the park this past week. The lake is huge, longer than wide. Lots of water sports. A small beach on the lake with lots of picnic spots and toilets. There's a small restaurant on the lake that sells food and ice cream treats. You can rent boats there, buy wood or bait.
Our campsite was a good size as most are. There are flush toilets and pit, and nice showers. You can hear owls at night along with coyotes and cows! The park is surrounded by dairy farms.
One of the attractions to this park is the little brown bats. A worker built many bat houses throughout the park and campers come at sunset to watch the bats come out of their houses. This means there are very few mosquitoes in the park. We've had flooding and lots of rain in the area the last couple of months, it would be unbearable if it weren't for the bats I'm sure.
This is a nice park and a lovely campground. There are also group campsites that looked very large with electricity. Other sites also have electricity for campers, we stayed in a tent.
