Heated Activity Pool, Ranger Station Pool and Spash Pad are all Open for the 2017 Season!

Our original pool is conveniently located behind the Ranger station. Our new Water Zone pool and splashpad are located by the fishing pond. There is plenty of room to sit in the sun too. Just remember that children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately in 2015 we had to close the kiddie pool due to a leak that was not fixable. Coming improved area with tables and umbrellas.

Outdoor Pavilion

This is one of the happening places in the campground. It is located near the Ranger station and will seat approximately 100 people. Many of our recreation activities begin here – including our hey-hey-hey rides. Most every Saturday night you will hear the sounds of the young and not so young as we host karaoke.



In addition to showing movies at the amphitheater, we also play games: have costume contests and other activities here. If you see the sky lit up at night, it might just be our huge bon fire beside the amphitheater. Get your marshmallows and roasting sticks out and come on up. The amphitheater is available for family reunions, rallies, and large groups. Call for reservations and rates today.


Fishing Pond and Gazebo

Bring your fishing pole and see what size bream or catfish that you might catch! Or you may just want to sit on a bench and just relax or catch the breeze under the Gazebo. We have fish food available for sale by the pond… the ducks like it too. All fishing is catch and release. Swimming is not allowed in the pond.

The gazebo is available for small, intimate weddings. Call for rates.
