the pull thru sites are just off the water(not by much/75yds?). they are decent, and pretty close to me also. there are sites close to me. across from the water, same side of the road as me. still decent sites. alot cheaper too. no electric though. i have about 200 ft of hose if you need water to fill your tanks. there are also a couple hunderd other sites at the other end of the park that are ok. they give you a very nice bike ride to come my site. its not a holiday weekend, it wont sell out(seldom does except holidays). the waterfront and pull thru sites are the only sites in the park you can reserve by credit card over the phone. dee and i will be up fri by dinner time. if your coming after that we can put a tent on a site to reserve it for you. pm me if you need help of any kind, im sure we can work something out.

we went swimming and took a pontoon boat ride the first week of june. water was pretty cold saturday, but warmed up considerably by late sun. was very refreshing. mid 60's water temp by sunday. gas is killing the park up here. besides the yearlys there was mabey 40 or 50 total campers. the place was almost totally empty all weekend(i love it). should be tons of open spots in the park for everyone if your interested.
hope to see a few more of you show up.

Trust me it's not as easy as he makes it look.

You may have noticed that one of our friends seems a bit "flat"
well the fella in the middle is known as Chuck and he couldn't make it this year and I told him we would remember him while we had fun.

Pat (Chuck's wife), if you're reading this close your eyes...
even our neighbors wanted to say Hi with Chuck.
