  • Gorgeous lake. Campsites are underwhelming for RVs but has all the essential hook ups. There is no lake side or waterfront campsites. The Rangers were helpful and attentive. It seemed to be the slow time of the year, so the campsites were quiet and well-maintained. Great place to bike, hike, and explore nature. Great stay. Looking forward to visiting again.
  • Very nice and clean state park. Fee is little high, but it's good if you get the yearly pass. Nice pond, boats available for rent. Nice trails for walking, hiking. Also a very nice bike trail. Good place for camping.
  • Sequi is a great park with plenty to offer. There is a small lake surrounded by playgrounds and picnic areas for the family to enjoy. There is a dog park by the log cabin and hiking trails run throughout the park.
  • Although the price has gone up the park is still a very nice place to go with its wonderful trails, areas for the kids, and areas to relax. Enjoy many different types of activities here including the splash pad! Well maintained.
  • Very nice park. Stopped here briefly on a trip to Charlotte. Returning soon for a more in depth stay.
