Group Camping

2 sites can accommodate up to 40 people and 1 site can accommodate up to 30 people.

It has large group sites and a covered 24' by 40' meeting area that can be reserved along with your site. Site A is a little less desirable since it is not directly on the water and is a little bit smaller. Site A also only has four picnic tables and the others have five. The parking for Site A does not have RV parking in front of the site, but there is extra parking close by. RV users are better off reserving B or C. There is a large bathroom with showers. The water system is pressurized. There is good cell phone coverage along with paved roads and spurs. The campground has a nice beach with easy water access.
