Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down

Thumbs Up!  For day sailing, the beach is close to the swim area and the picnic area.  For Cabin renters, the cabins also place you near the boat ramp and launch area.  Convenience Store and Restaurant nearby. 

Thumbs Down! Although there are boat ramps near the RV/Campground areas, there is not as good of beach area as is found on Quarry Island.
