  • Decent set up. Nice that its free. It was not crowded and they updated the archery area since last year. We spent the whole day here and had a blast. Wife, hubby, and son.  more »
  • Its a small park with one road through it - so more of a weekend getaway. We hiked the short trail on the end of the lake opposite the dam. You can glimpse the water, for about a 150 yards and then it...  more »
  • We had a good time fishing. We don't have a boat and we were looking for a place that could fish on shore and catch something. WELL this is the place. In 2 days we caught 11 catfish. It is handcapp ac...  more »

  • We spend a fair amount of time here because it's close to home. Fishing from shore is OK (when it's busy, it's hard to find a place). Beach is relatively clean and free of goose droppings. Amenities are standard WI state park. Interesting to note the bat boxes up all over this park.
  • Very spacious composites with big trees that offer privacy and shade. Not too crowded. The showers and restroom are nice and cleaned daily. Nice lake.
  • This is a nice little state park with an excellent little lake. The bugs though... be prepared!
  • Had a great time and was able to do pretty well ice fishing. Really had to sort through the small fish but we were able to keep quite a few nice ones. I will go back next year for ice fishing again. I wish you didn't have to drive clear to the other side of the part to get a day pass though but that is a minor complaint.
  • Gem of a state park out in the country. Large lake (reservoir) with boat rentals and fishing, great hiking and more.
