Great for camping, not for hiking

Some friends and I went camping here last weekend. It's a small, lesser known park that doesn't usually have a ranger at the gate, so entrance is very often free if you don't go on big camping weekends like Memorial Day weekend. Otherwise it's $8 for a day use permit. Don't go here if you're looking for a nice quiet hike since the most hiking you can do is between campsites along the shore. But if you're looking for a great place to camp on the lake, this is it. Only complaint was the $15/night camping permit. It should've been ~$5/night since there's no running water or electrical and only one bathroom way in the middle of the parking area.
