  • This is an incredible state park. We stayed here for five nights and after the first night, already starting planning out next trip. The camp sites are very spacious, the park is well kept, clean, and quiet. Our puppy loved playing in the lake (pet friendly park!) The staff are so friendly too. Can not say enough positive statements about this park. We've camped at a few state parks from ND to MN to SC and this is our favorite so far.
  • Great park on Lake Russel. Nice campground safe boat ramp and friendly folks who are there of you need them.
