  • This wonderful campground would get five stars but when it's quiet you can just hear the highway traffic in the far distance. Personally it's not a deal breaker for me. The little beach is great for kids, the water looks like an algae filled pond, but it's cool and refreshing. It's filled with trails connecting all the sites with the lake area. You can rent canoes, kayaks, pontoons, and paddle boards. There is a nice little pier for fishing and some really nice hiking trails that are not too long for the kiddies. The sites are spaced out nicely so you don't have to listen to your neighbors. I would definitely go again.
  • Mushroom hike! We checked out the trails in mid-September. There were still fierce mosquitoes and all different kinds of mushrooms everywhere! It was a real treat. The trails were not crowded that day, so most mushrooms stayed in tact. Trails are relatively flat and wide and double for mountain biking. We started at the Park Office, then hiked Hastings Trail and Fern Dell Trail (6 miles) before throwing in Turtleville Trail (2.5 miles) at the end. Turtleville was the most beautiful! You get a view of the clear lake.
  • Had an awful experience here. First, the lake was really gross so we didnt go swimming or kayaking. Then, I wasn't given proper instructions on where my car was allowed to be so even though I paid for parking I received an $170 parking ticket. The rangers just seemed to be looking for ways to get more money out of visitors. Our campsite was relatively empty(only 1 other group a few sites over), but the rangers came over to our camp site at 10pm and told us we could no longer have music even though they acknowledged that there was no one around. They also had been silently waitin on the end he of our camp before approaching us as if they were waiting for us to do something they could get us in trouble for. We went on a hike and the trails were ok. The hike was pretty much the only thing that wasn't disappointing and yet I've been on much more scenic hikes.
  • This camping area has a lot to offer; great trails, showers, playgrounds and a nice beach/picnic area. My only complaint was the traffic noise particularly at night. We stayed at site 50, it could have been the spot but it looked far enough away on the map from the highway. Personally, the consistent noise from traffic is enough to keep me from wanting to return. Sure, earplugs can solve the problem but, if you also enjoy the natural sounds of the forest night as part of your camping experience- I'd look for a more secluded alternative.
  • Just arrived as the sun was setting so we didn't see much of the park. We came for the moon walk. Event was well done. Would love to see more of the park on another visit.
