  • Awesome camp grounds beautiful surrodings the staff were extremely polite super clean and we'll maintained park
  • Great state park we're going there couple times this year
  • Very nice little cross country ski trail if you looking for a nice quick day trip
  • Very nice campground! Plenty of bathrooms and showers. Beautiful views from the beach, I enjoyed watching the sun set while my daughter played in the sand.
  • A wonderful campground with a beautiful beach. Some of the sites are well-shaded, others are not. Bathrooms were small and therefore always a little bit muddy/dirty since it was a busy weekend. Park has hiking trails (which are not very well marked in some places), playgrounds, and a fishing pond/pier for the kids. Highly recommend!
