Amazing mini cabins for the faint of heart camper such as myself. This is a perfect compromise for me and my husband with our two little kids for a weeks adventure. Fully equipped kitchen with the main necessities. The mini bar fridge, kitchen toaster, toaster oven, microwave, coffee machine, kettle and two burner stove top make it perfect for someone who needs a little more luxury and I can't forget to mention the full bathroom, shower, tub and toilet. Only issues and it's the time of year we choose to stay (mid August), is the lack of communication between the main entrance and the convince store. Make sure to double check and triple check if they are even open during your stay as we've encountered over the past two years that the store is NOT open the entire time we are there although we were told by reception at check in it was and until 9:00 pm for us to get wood...not the case. We went off campgrounds as the bundle at the beach store is measly and costly to boot. We ran into a number of campers who were told the same as us and on the second day a paper note appeared on the door of the store saying closed all week, go to the beach convince store which is a drive away, not a walk. Again, not a deal breaker but an inconvenience. Hence the four stars and not five. We will be back with our firewood next year.

Very nice beach and park to relax with friends or family. It’s a lake so don’t expect too much. The vibe is great. Coffee in coffee shop was better than expected! We took a walk along the trail and enjoyed breathing in the fresh air and oxygen. You can rent a bike for an hour or more as well. There are tons of activities on beach. Excellent family outing. There are tons of barbecues and picnic tables. Some people brought hammocks! Chill, read a book or do sport activities, whatever you want on a Sunday afternoon.

One we have visited the place, in mid September at that time no water activities were available. So visit it on July August time. It'll be better. Go with toys and all the beach activities and your lunch. There is one cafe or restaurant is also there. And go with another pair of clothes you can change over there.

Wonderful beach. Shallow and sandy with no weeds. Lots of amenities ( rentals, food, shop). A little more expensive than some beaches ( aprox $28 for 2 adults and a car) but very nice. Huge area with lots of beach, lifeguards and picnic areas.
