The kitchen areas were very nice and well equiped and I loved the deck but it was a shame there were not more picnic tables on the deck. The camping area was very attractive and I was very lucky to get a shady spot and a view of the lake. It was great to be able to jump into the lake where you were hot. The event I was attending was in the centre and it was nice that there were doors opening onto patio area with views of the lake. The showers were great and always available and always hot. The toilets were always good also. There were also outside showering facilities, a drinking water fill up place, a tap at the right height to wash your feet, a cafe close by so all in all I thought it was great.
