  • The trial map offered at the limited-service visitor center wasn't very helpful at decoding the mostly-numbered branches of the trails. We didn't know we could buy or download a better version.  more »

  • Awesome park to camp in but you need to book early to get the sites you want. Also the boat launch facility is very nice and big. So if you are new to boating I would recommend it. It is a lot of less stress to get your boat in and out of the water.
  • Had an absolute amazing time here camping in Gilmore loop. 5 disc golf courses, nice beach, super clean water to swim in. Great facilities hot showers and flush toilets. All sites in this loop are paved. Star gazing was outstanding. Only 10min to Silverwood. We will definitely be back.
  • So many hiking trails! Camping areas are roomy. They have Showers and real toilets! Beautiful green area and swimming at the very close by lake! Late at night the sky lights up with more stars than I have seen in a long time. A lot of history in the srea
  • We love this place. This was our first time camping here but not our first time visiting the park. It’s a great place to play! We camped at Gilmore and it was great. The hosts were wonderful and friendly. The grounds were well maintained and the sites were paved and level. So easy! Just a few mins to Beaver Bay and the boat launch. There are tons of biking/hiking trails through the entire park and you can access them from any of the campgrounds. Absolutely love having this place on our backyard. Such a gem!
  • We stayed at the Gilmore campsite. We loved it. Wide open space for the kids and dogs. Quiet yet not so quiet your kids can't be kids. The bathrooms and showers were nice. Our host was great. 🙂
