This campground has been family owned and operated since 1939. This is a great place to spend some quality family time or just to get away for some fishing, swimming and picnicking. All of the campsites have water, electricity, and fire rings. Campers can use the swimming pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, laundry facilities, rent a row or paddle boat, watch a movie Friday and Saturday nights at the outdoor movie theatre or play a round of mini golf. There are also family activities including Bingo, ceramics, crafts, pool games and story time. The campground also has 2 basketball courts, a baseball field, playground and a teen recreational center with video games.
