We always enjoy camping at the Lewis and Clark Recreation center, but this time there was an issue with a dog that was disturbing. A young girl was attached at the beach by a dog. The girl did nothing to provoke the dog and was bitten on the face. We were there with our 3 year old grandson and it could have just as easily had been him. I realize people love their pets, but why do they need to be at the beach? I also am an animal lover, but I do think there are places that pets do not need to be included. The facility is nice and the staff is friendly, but I wish visitors who bring their pets with them would be more aware of what could happen.

Clean, safe park

We camped a week with our grandkids and loved the bike trails and beaches. Bathrooms were clean, and the site we were in was roomy and quite private. During the week it was very peaceful, but very busy during the weekend. I saw the park ranger trucks drive through quite often, which makes a person feel safe.
