When we first arrived. I was concerned the place was sketch. But As we drove people warmly smiled and waved and kids rode bikes. We set up in a spot that was close enough to hear road noise but surrounded by trees. It was spacious enough for a group. We were greeted with a friendly and informative host. Noticed rangers all carry fire arms, that were friendly but from the quietness from the park, it was obvious they enforce quiet time. We walked by them late and they said hi. We walked the trails at night and were pleasantly surprised by the asphalt biking trails and natural well manicured walking trails into the prairie grasses. On the night trails, the prairie grasses glittered with lightning bugs and the moon lit up the pale flowers. The night forest was reminiscent of apple throwing trees from wizard of oz. It was cool and as we walked the landscape kept changing sparking our curiosity of what was around the bend. The trail ran around much of the lake and the next day we kayaked early on the mirror like water. The time was perfect as it not too hot and not too cold. There were many dragon flys and several fisherman out on banks of the lake. The lake was large enough to kayak for a couple of hours without growing bored. After we noticed the showers were very clean with four large family restrooms had warm water and although you need to press the button for water it gives you plenty of time to wash. The soap was stocked and toilet recently cleaned. We had a great experience. We had cell service with us cellular and good Wifi. I would definitely come back and friends and family.
