    This is a great family campground! We visited in July and it was HOT HOT HOT! But the lake was perfect for cooling off! The "food hut" (as my kids called it) was also a great retreat to cool off with some tasty treats. We had a group of 5 families that were all very pleased! Looking forward to future visits!
