    A very quiet and private campground with loope drives allowing for private sites with good tree/shrub buffers. Two paved loopes and two gravel road loopes. Althrough the paved loopes are nice one still must travel on gravel road to get there. Close to home and we visit each year. The dump station is much in need of an upgrade though.

    This park is very nice, with much wooded acreage and several small lakes. Great place to kayak or canoe, or to bike. Just off I-75.
