  • Had a great time here. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained and the tent sites had plenty of room. I liked that the tent pads were covered in gravel so you don't track dust into your tent. The red trail around the lake is a really nice hike with lots of great views.
  • This state park is a very nice and quiet getaway. Paddle boats, canoes and a floating dock are all fun water activities available. Nice trails to hike. The restrooms are well maintained.
  • This is a beautiful park!! The water is so clear, you can see your feet!! The hiking trails are great!!
  • I've been going here since I was a little kid. I love the area it's very scenic. The swimming area is really nice.
  • $4 admission fee. Loved that place, my son enjoyed it there too. There's only a swing set for kids (and adults) and they have some boats towards the back too. You can also go camping too.
