"Oh my goodness! Imagine everything you know about an average campsite bathroom, basic cement room with a drain in the floor? Not this place! This beautiful place is amazing, tile floor, wooden walls, and you can go in the bathroom barefoot unafraid! The site is great for camping, the pool is heated and there's a spa to relax in! The rangers all seem to be courteous and helpful. There's even a beach where you can rent boats and ride the lake with a beautiful view of the lodges that you can rent out." ~Vanessa
