Park is close to town (4 miles or so) and amenities, as well as the inter-state.

Amenities are many; nice little nature center with ranger and nature walks(adults and kids) in the 2018 season.

Walking trails thru the woods are well maintained, as well as an outer loop road that is paved.

Lake is short walk or drive with an awesome sand beach, playground, picnic shelter and toilets. Its in the park so its never really busy!

Spots are moderately spaced but never feel crowded, electric sites on the loop end do have an incline so make sure the check when reserving. Lots of shade.

bathrooms are typical, and spaced nicely. some flush and some pit.

overall its an annual must hit for the hot part of summer, the beach is great for swimming, nicely shaded and the ease of access to the four lane highways, 90 minutes from green bay!
