The facility is in a beautiful forest along the shoreline, providing campers and day-use visitors with access to water sports, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and biking.
Campers can explore the lakeshore using the campground’s hiking trails and paved bicycle trail. The waterway is popular for fishing for bass, crappie, bream, catfish and more.
