  • The park is huge so you cannot see it all in two days. Great place for biking. The lake is perfect for boating and also fishing. Good prices for boat rentals.
  • Spent mothers day there 16 pass boat. Choc xiv ' strawberries, crabs n shrimp n snow crab claws. Diamond necklace. My eldest. Best day of year
  • We love the park! Whether we're hiking, walking around the marina, boating with friends or kayaking, we always have a great time! Interactions with rangers and other staff have always been pleasant.
  • While enjoyed as an excellent fishing lake. The mountain bike trails although limited, there's potential here and would make a great destination if expansion is in the future.
  • We started off our trip to a dirty tent site with someone's clothes and trash laying around. They are very strict on late night noise.. we were enjoying our fire on Memorial Day weekend with light music, not loud by all means, especially compared to other state parks we've visited on holiday weekends. In the pitch dark a person flashed their flashlight into our site and approached without announcing whom they might be. Feeling nervous that we didn't know who was approaching, it left us with a threatened feeling for sure, your should never walk up to someone without announcing who you are, especially when you are walking on foot, in the dark, with no reflectors or indication that you are someone of authority, it could end very unpleasant. To our surprise it was a ranger saying the "noise" was too loud and that quiet time started at 9pm. We apologized, and lowered the music but she continued to mildly interrogate my family about checking coolers and bags if she has to come back again. This left a bad taste in our mouth, my 9 year old nephew was sitting with us at the time, and she was a little too rough for my liking, especially considering we were very respectful and complied with her request. Otherwise,Fishing was scarce, the pontoon rentals are a very nice feature, not many hiking trails to explore, and tons of RVs. Bathrooms were kept very well. In all, we would not return to Cordorus.
