    What a mess. If you hunt hard enough, you might find a map of this place at a local gas station or convenience store. Then, you see an icon for the park office in the key, but there is no office marked on the map. The caretaker is totally oblivious to what is going on and you have to PAY to have a shower! Party, party, party. Motorcycles revving through all day long. Very few campsites on water. Sites mostly crammed together. DON'T TOUCH ANY WINDFALL FIREWOOD! Good grief!

    No plantlife at all. It is crowded with party-goers on the weekends. Boat traffic is very high. The facilities are slightly new though.

    A very dirty lake with a massive amount of boat traffic. The facilities are not kept up very well, and the lake is packed on the weekends with party-goers.
