Though not quite as great as it was 20 years ago it is still a great place to spend a relaxing day at the lake. The new Ranger and his staff seem to he very committed to making it better. They have already made progress and he has some wonderful ideas for much more improvement. Camping spots are reasonably priced. Boat, canoe, and kayak rentals also at a decent rate, though they don't rent after 3 pm for some odd reason. Hard to believe they would limit their revenue like that.
They do family events with the park staff almost every weekend. We have been to a family fishing day, a fossil class, a Dutch oven cooking class, and a coffee with the Rangers meet and greet. They also have had a few bird watching classes, I think, though we have been unable to attend those yet.
There are several hiking trails. Well marked and traveled. There is a fishing (no license required) pier, swimming area (though it could use some work), boat ramp and a few other spots along the bank of the lake with benches to rest or fish from.
Bathrooms are well maintained and generally clean. Handicapped accessible. Shower facilities are also available. There are cabins to rent, though I don't know how much they cost as we're camping purists, and cabins aren't camping. 😉
All in all this is a very worth while place to spend the day, weekend, or even longer. If you are outdoors inclined you will find something to do. Definitely worth the few bucks you spend to get in. This is our regular spot for weekend activities and will be for the foreseeable future.
