Very family friendly. Open to pets and the most frienldy staff I have ever met in all the time I have been camping. Restrooms were cleaned on a daily basis. The swim beach was great for the kids as it was broken into sections for your swim level. For the young kids they had a large soft turtle and some lilly pads to play on. They also had several playgrounds at the beach. To get to the beach was a short trail hike or if not up for the hike a short drive away.We have a tent and the gound in the tent area was mulched rubber. Nicely laid out. We will be going back for years to come.
