  • We always enjoy our camping at Charleston lake. The fishing is really good as well. I've caught many bass from the lake over the years. The park is kept very clean and the staff are great.  more »

  • If you have just enough time for a trail, this is the best one. We were able to see where the natives used to live. They sheltered under the rocks. Nearby they had a lake for fishing and cleaning thei...  more »

  • Great park. Clean beaches. Interesting mix of short and some longer trails. Not camped here but used for running and hiking.
  • Great spot with lots to explore - by canoe/kayak or shoreline hikes. The water is crystal clear and like glass later in the day. Lots of options for fishing spots. I'd suggest staying at Shady Ridge. The only downfall is the lack of privacy at a lot of sites (close to the road). Our site (336) was ok for privacy, but held the water from the rain. Sites in that area are close to the beach and a few on the lake side have the added bonus of their own path to the water. Overall it's a beautiful park.
  • June 26,2017. So this year has been quite wet. I get it! Do you think the park would do something like put wood chips (which should be free for them). Of course not! Instead they wait til you complain obsessively. Don't get me wrong! Nice park. Just make sure weather conditions are perfect or you'll need to tread likely!
  • This is our favourite place to camp. The water is so clear. We go to the interior camping grounds, very private. Great rock jumping spots!
  • Amazing lake nice beach one incredeble view after another we'll run park book early or you won't get a spot .the remote sights are special.
