review rating - 1 to 5 stars - I think people should wear bathing suits not clothes in the water. Babies should not allowed in the water in diapers.

review rating - 1 to 5 stars Triple check your camping reservations - Last night after dark we were bumped from our campsite by six rambunctious 30-somethings who wrongly insisted the site was theirs. Six on two, we lost. The park police affirmed there had been a double-booking. My man and I were given the option of camping in the office parking lot overnight. So sad. We got a refund, too, but it really was a bad experience.

review rating - 1 to 5 stars Picnic & swimming - Went there with a group on Aug 28...the grounds are great for a day out. However the bathrooms were spotless at 8:30, but by 10am they were a disgusting mess that just got worse. If a Parkway reststop can be kept clean all day, so can 4 bathrooms. Half the adjacent beach area was closed but had 2 lifeguards in one chair...maybe one could have moved 75 feet and sat by himself and avoinded terrible overcrouding? Beaches were also closed for 45 min 3 times so both life guards could take their break together instead of staggering them. As a park the people that were there that day made a mess, there was no Ranger control and do not listen to instructions. One person was told not to fish 5 times over the loud speaker, but just kept walking back and fishing and there were no rangers in sight all day. This facility is to be closed M-F Aug 29- Sept 3 and then open for the final Holiday weekend. I think new management is warranted, as this is a beautiful area. I would love to come back, but not on the weekend.
