First time to visit, looking forward to coming back during the summer months. We camped with friends to see the fall colors , all were booked on full hook up sites with a view of the lake. Sites were tidy and minus the rain, set up went quick. No one was present to check us in, so we did the self checkin via the phone at the ranger station.

Only one half of the campground was open due to the time of year but that still left many sites available. Bathrooms were clean, stopped in a couple of times during walks.

Took two hikes at Marl lake, loved it’s proximity to the campground. Having sites with a view of the lake but not directly on allowed for walking down to the mini beaches to watch the sunrise or do a little star gazing without going onto someone’s site.

Part of one of our walks through the park took us to the actual beach, boat launch and camp store (closed for the season).

The sites were decently spaced, had lots of room to park our truck without the site feeling cramped. We didn’t have any tree coverage, those sites were further from the lake.

No on site WiFi from the campground, our phones had very limited service in the park but our Verizon hotspot was excellent with 4g lte 3 bars.
