Park Manager, Doug Graham and I visited the campground with intentions to support and get to know our friendly neighbors. We met with co-owner, Kristy Bazzanella, as she gave us a tour of the campground and everything they have to offer. With access to the lake and beautifully maintained facilities, we highly recommend this campground to those looking for an affordable family getaway.
