This would be a nice little area to camp in once it's summer. My last excursion there was employment related. Extremely cold,but had beautiful view of the lake.

Great place for a quick getaway. Shady trees and a great lake full of fish! Rented a cabin. Its a typical state park cabin... A big wood box with beds, a.c. and a heater. It was clean and quiet... Worth the money. We try to stay during the week to miss the crowd.
