  • Such a great place to camp with our travel trailer. Good camping spots, trees all around so the sun does not beat down on you. Great place for families. Office staff so friendly and helpful.  more »
  • We camp out 4th of July weekend. It is a very nice park. Just very strict and rude at front desk! I will not be going back to this place. I will take my family elsewhere!  more »

  • Good boat ramp, nice fishing piers, nice overall family recreation. Pay close attention to the posted speed limit signs. ( Do the exact speed ) among others ... (No Open Container) who would have ever known you can't have a beer while your fishing ????????? used to be state police officer in white truck that was a bit ridiculous ... writing tickets to (customers) of the state park for reasons that the general public would never know was against the law in a state park .... Can be given a citation for this just so ya know .... Kinda Ridiculous in my opinion ..... Young Man with a badge syndrome, that's my 2cents. Have a good day.
  • Very clean. Friendly people. Nice camp sites. Quiet. But put all your foods up the racoons are not shy,they will come and get your food with you right there. The trails need to be better marked,but still nice. Lots of birds,some deers.
  • I have been to the beach with my grandkids a few times. It is small (50 people) but very good beach.
  • Never go to Purtis State Park. They just falsely accused my nephew of being drunk. He's 45 and not a drinker, ZERO alcohol!! Said they would handcuff him. They took many drivers license from Reunion guests to "run for warrants" I guess since they couldn't find a drunk! On our family? His daughter was leaving the Reunion and a Barney Fife on a mule stopped and ask them to repark somewhere. The girl was leaving already. But the park monitor was across the street and said he smelled alcohol on his breath! They called the TPW officer and he came to the campsite. He accused first and ask questions after. He wouldn't even offer a breathlizer. A complaint is being filed on the short people on the mule(supposedly a retire cop and his wife) which I'm sure tax payers money paid, supposedly Park Rangers. They smelled alcohol on a non-drinker. Publicly humiliated him and our entire family. Falsely accused, refused to apologize? And the TPW Officer who also accused him. They wrongly identified him as a drunk. Actually they asked him to move a car. That was all. We were all in our campsite. Laughing and catching up. Many drove hours to see our family. No apology, no, nothing! Filing a complaint with the State Tuesday.
  • Great bass fishing. Excellent picnic and swimming area. One of my favorite state parks to visit. Not very many trails mainly set up for fishing.
