You can catch a lot of catfish and once in a while a trout... The trout are very tasty, if prepared right. It seems like worms were the best bait. Make sure to get your fishing license first... You can get one at Wal-Mart. Little kids can fish free, and it's fun for the whole family!

Larry and Eva are great hosts; helped us set up our cable TV when we had forgotten some items. Unique resort as 2/3rd are permanent or semi-permanent residents during the summer months. But contrary to some other parks and resorts we have visited, the residents welcomed us, even though we would be there only three days. Some even came to the campsite out of curiousity I am sure, but made sure we were welcomed and invited to events and activities. We were invited to tour the area with our neighbors [as we had no "toad". We lucked out and got a nice level site admidst tall pine trees. Be aware elevation is 7200' if you have any breathing problems, but within a few days I had adjusted just fine. Beautiful remodeld bathroom, though could just accomodate one person at a time. Great clubhouse space. Will consider coming here again.
