This park has big pine trees and a few short trails. One hiking/biking trail goes all the way around the pond. Another hiking trail goes up a hill to a "high point." The view is pretty good. Swimming ... more »

Beautiful, clean, quiet park in Dangerfield. The lake is great for swimming and has a platform just off shore that is fun for the kids to jump off of. Primitive and RV camp sites are available as well as some small cabins. The staff at the park hosted an educational event for the strawberry moon happening while we were there and I thought that really added something extra to our stay. Overall a great place to stay with the family.
This park struck me as the cleanest I've ever visited. The trails are not vast or difficult, but the 4 mile trail I hit was clean and serene. The canoe rental was painless and all of the equipment was inorder. Every staff member I met was pleasant. We stayed 3 days in a newly renovated cabin. The cabin was great and the appliances were in perfect shape. Purchased a park pass from them in the hopes I find more parks run this well.
Even though my time there was short it was amazing! My friends and I received free stress balls in the gift shop and we were playing just outside with them. For awhile it was nice but then a park ranger came out and set up a jukebox for us and we got to play songs for free until she left! The view of the water is just beautiful and being surrounded by all the trees at our campsite was amazing! I would love to go back!
We had such a great time!! Our cabin was great! Very,very nice. Had cabin 2, 2 br. I'd stay again without question. This park is the best! Very well supervised with a park host at each camp site. What a plus,to keep things taken care of. Has a little store in case a need or a want. So glad no alcohol allowed. GREAT place for safe family fun! LOVE IT!!
We drove over 2 hours to visit this state park and it was 100% worth it! The trails and landscape were beautiful! There was no trash or littering anywhere and the animals were abundant and not afraid of hikers. The paddle boats and kayaks were $16, very affordable, and the entire place was just a blast to explore!
