  • 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!
  • We had a good time. We plan to camp here again. Staff very friendly and a lovely park.
  • Love the beach area, come here to swim every time we visit! The water is so beautiful!
  • There are many things to do at this state park. The beach is so beautiful, and we love the campsites. Bathrooms are clean as well as the showers
  • Great park. Nice lake. A lot of campers.
