There are a lot of nice things about this park. It is very green and feels private in the family temp camping spots. The mountain bike trails are great and there are plenty of things to do around the park. The amenities like the pool and snack bar are set up to entertain families with kids. The downside is that the park is very close to a large water treatment facility and we frequently had bad smells coming through the campground. It was pretty hard to ignore.
