  • We walked on the Rail Trail and boated on North Bend Lake - both very interesting. There are bike and boat rentals during warmer months, or bring your own. The lake has lots of dead trees and stumps, ...  more »
  • We rented a cabin for the weekend, it was extremely relaxing and quiet! The cabin has most necessary items needed. During our stay we ate at the lodge where we found the food to be great!

  • We have gone to use the pool, several times with our little ones. The lifeguards are great, they allow your children to have fun, while maintaining safety at all times. They do require Coast Guard approved life vests, however they do provide loaners. There is little shade, but the baby pool area offers areas for the young and old to maintain their "coolness" while children play. Concessions are available at a reasonable cost. We will continue to go there. We LOVE it! Thanks!
  • We were not at the lodge for any other reason than to park as my family decided to take the day and go hiking yesterday. The park is so well-maintained, absolutely beautiful and the added bonus is that it is pet friendly! Nobody looks twice at our Pitbull and we felt very comfortable there.
  • Great place for campers. Many activities for adults and children. Trails to walk two old train tunnels one is supposed be haunted. Fishing and boating. Swimming and so much more.
  • I always come here for family reunions. Never been disappointed. The staff is always really nice and goes out of their way to get people involved with park activities. The rooms are a little tight and the food is nothing special but overall a positive.
  • One Of The Most Reasonable State Parks I've Been To With Good Food And Nice Cabins
