“Great place”

Overall Rating

I'll start with the one weird thing -- there is no check in process. You either just remember your spot number or they have a board, then you drive to your spot. This is OK, but the roads aren't marked well and it is not clear which way to go down the road, so we ended up driving around.

Anyway, besides that, this park is beautiful. You are surrounded by large trees, the spots are large and level and the hookups are all where they should be. It is a short walk to the lake and a beautiful beach.

If you are driving on I35 and need a convenient yet beautiful stop, this is a good one. Or, if you want to spend some time at the beach, this would be great for longer stays, too.
