These pictures are of the playground in the campground 


 The campground has a paved road and the sites are extremely private.  A few negatives: sites share a water hookup location.  This means every other site needs to have extra water hoses to reach and it will be running across your site.  I did not leave mine hooked up after I filled my fresh water tank.  Also, most of the fire rings where located in poor spots not allowing people to sit around them.

Typical Camp Bathhouse.  They were clean and in decent condition.


These pictures show numerous campsites throughout the park.  The site numbers are on the ground in the front of the spots.  Numerous sites are located on the creek. 
These are not in any order of preference. 


One of the prettier sites was #86, it was extremely large and had huge logs to sit on around the fire pit.  Plus it was on the creek.  However, it is not very level.

Here are some of the wildlife we saw during our trip


Huge soft shell turtle

Gopher Tortoise

My family enjoyed our stay at this park.
