  • My family and I had a pretty good time, but I don't think it's on our list of places to go back. They are way to strict with their noise ordinance. It's hard to feel comfortable there, especially when there are golf carts driving around 24/7. It's just anxiety provoking. They did allow dogs though, which is a huge plus and the main reason we picked this place out. Although our campsite neighbors also had a dog and when their dog ran over without a leash we weren't upset at all, it happens, but they made some unpleasant comments because my dog barked a couple times around 9:00 pm. The canoe and kayak rentals are pricey. We went to Button Bay State Park a couple years ago and their prices were much more reasonable. There is a beach, but I couldn't tell about it because no dogs are allowed there, but the boat access area and where the kayaks are was small but very pretty. Dogs are allowed there. The camps sites are to close together for our comfort and the majority of them we saw were very small and consisted more of the rock driveway then grass. My sister, her boyfriend and my niece were fortunate enough to have brought air mattresses, but my fiancĂ© and I didn't and it was uncomfortable sleeping on rocks, and my sister even gave us the less rockier area. This State Park seems to attract certain type of people, which is why I brought up the situation with our neighbors. None us of had a friendly or welcoming feeling being there, but we still had fun amongst ourselves. I posted a couple pictures of our campsite and you can see what I tried explaining about the rocky campsites.
  • One of the best camping grounds I've ever been to! The well-separated, keyhole-shaped sites give each site the feeling that it's just you there. It was very quiet when we were there, a bit off-season as it were, and the nighttime skies were simply incredible! All of the the facilities were very clean and well maintained. Great place to spend some time, close enough to Burlington so that finding a dinner out or to resupply your stores is only a short drive.
  • We go every year and love it there, peaceful and quiet, the staff is great and the view at the water is wonderful. very clean and great sites
  • Beautiful clean state campground. A variety of sites from tent to RVs (central dumping location) as well as cabins (120V + light) and 3 sided shelters, these have some of the best lake views. The coastline allows for a variety of water activities, but plan on sandals/water shoes at ALL times, quite sharp slate everywhere. Boat launch and "Dog beach", supposed to be leashed at all times throughout campground. Half hour to Burlington and 5 minutes to towns to South and north, 90 minutes to Montreal.
  • The staff were very nice, and fire wood is available by the arm load from the front desk. Unfortunately, they have exactly one shower for about 40 campsites and it's coin operated. And that shower is in the same small room as the three toilets. Also, forget about washing your hands thoroughly because you have to hold the faucet on with one hand while you rinse the other. I understand water conservation but I've been to State Parks where they at least have a faucet that stays on for a couple seconds after you push the button. There is a bathhouse (on the "less desirable" and less populated side of the campground) with about four private showers so I drove over there when I wanted to take a shower without waiting in line for 45 mins.
