A little far but has everything you need
Fair distance from the town centre (about 10 minutes) but right next to the lake (big lake however). Not enough free parking spots on the property (only about 6-7). There's free parking along the street but difficult to find a space during peak times (afternoon/evening) until relatively late at night. Dorm and facilities were clean and good customer service at the front desk.
Stayed 3 nights in Feb 2020
