  • Visited the Fire Tower with my family and enjoyed Pokémon Go with strangers. Great sense of community.
  • This place both the camping side and the recreation part need updating or just fixed.
  • We stayed in the Camper Cabins with another family for a few days during the week and we had a pretty good time. The environment is laid back and kid friendly for the most part. The cabins themselves were "rustic" to say the least, but at least there was electricity, a microwave, and a mini-fridge. There is no running water inside these cabins but there is a pump head about 50ft from the front door...with very low pressure. There also are NO SHOWER FACILITIES AT ALL on camp property. The lake area is relatively small compared to some other state parks but is generally well kept and trash free. We caught a few small fish from the bank and did a little canoeing with the kids. There are also paddle boats for rent by the hour if that's your thing. The reason it got 3 stars was mainly for the lack of shower facilities and ridiculously low water pressure from the pump head, making it difficult to clean dishes and just get a drink. The cabin floor could also use a moping but overall was clean enough for us. There were also "locals" using the camp property as a cut-through to get to another road on the opposite side of the camp creating higher than normal weekday campground traffic.
  • The views are amazing.
