It was an adventure camping at this park. You just never know what to expect. It was pretty warm the morning we arrived but come afternoon we got caught in a rainshower. Thankfully, the general store within the park is well-stocked and carried tarp so we had some dry shelter. It was also quite cold that night. The camp hosts keep this place as neat as a pin, so the restroom and showers are nice. Raccoons come in swarms so keep your food secure.

Sites are fine, with fire rings and picnic tables

We stayed here in a Tent.
