Watch the ships on the river. Very nice, long, paved bike path to town by the nature preserve.
One new outhouse in 2004. Was not open in April, 2005
Crappy Cingular cellphone service that routes calls through Canada.
A perennial favorite with a moderate drive from home.
The State cut down 190 diseased trees in the spring of 2007.
In April 2009, the campground looks really bad. A lot more trees were cut down.

Personal Rating

From Alan: Two thumbs up for closeness to home. Too windy and chilly in April.
