  • Although the lakes are pretty, it is mostly a camping park with a little store to rent bikes and kayaks if you want. I saw a lot of people fishing from docks at the lakes. It is very serene but it is ...  more »
  • Rode our bicycles in the park. Would not revisit the park. They did have rentals of kayaks and canoes.  more »
  • What a disappoint, hillside had been burned, long way in to our spot, could hardly fit our unit, couldn't use the dump station, very unhandy. Hook-ups every which way. Very scrappy looking state park....  more »

  • Beautiful state park. Lots of hiking trails and a wonderful lake, complete with gators. Interesting to see the old farms in the area. Campground is nice, quiet, and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again.
  • This is a great place to get away and relax. It's quiet and well-maintained. No TVs, no Internet: perfect for an unplugged vacation. The lakes are beautiful. I didn't walk on the trails, but I walked along the road through the park and had a good time wading in Lake Louisa. I didn't spend a lot of time at the park during the day, but I enjoyed the evenings I spent there. For future park guests: there are no fitted sheets on the twin beds in the cabin, so if this bothers you, you may want to bring your own from home.
  • This park was absolutely amazing! We had a little reunion with some friends and rented 2 cabins! It was so peaceful and quiet. I would recommend twin fitted sheets for the bed. The sheets they provide don't stay on very well. The staff was wonderful and the cabins are very clean. We will definitely stay there again.
  • Sites are small with no view. Few are shady. No sites on the beautiful lakes. Scenery in the park, however, was beautiful! We camped in a 28 ft RV. Plenty to do at the park, but be prepared for a long walk or short drive.
  • This place is fantastic for a few days vacation and camping. We visited there a few times. Their cabins are very clean, equipped, and beautiful. Price is fair for cabins rental. There is a superstore a few miles outside the park if needed. Not having a wifi is a pros :)
