This was just a one night stop in our way up north, thankfully. The roads were kind of rough and our site was tight to back into. I'm assuming that the seasonal campers that occupied most of the campground were actually permanent residents judging by the amount of junk around the outside of the campers (appliances, trailers, etc). The dumpster was over flowing and there was a large amount of garbage bags piled on the side of it. The lake was stagnant and definitely not for swimming. I'm not sure how it received 4.1 out 5 stars on the website, but it fooled us. An overnight stay was enough for us.
