  • This is our first time coming here! What a wonderful gem of a State Park! The staff checking us in was very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms are clean and in good working order. Be sure to bring quarters for the showers! $2 will get you four minutes of shower time. The lake is an easy walk away from most campsites through a forest of oaks.
  • I always love coming here. Have caught many fish and have a great time every time I'm there. Usually there 30-40 times a year or more.
  • Great in the off season. Avoid the summer weekends and holidays. Staff is super helpful and friendly.
  • Spent a few days here last week before Easter. Nice campground and perfect weather.
  • Love this place. Only wish they would keep one store open
