    We loved our stay at Watkins Mill State Park. The Campsites are large and shaded and easy to get into. We enjoyed our tour of the Mill, Residence and Museum. I would only warn anyone planing on enteri...  more »

    Excellent campground with spacious sites and a number of "family sites" allowing two rv's to share a larger campsite, each with their own hookups. Most of the sites are nicely shaded, and noise is not...  more »

    We love coming here. I'm not sure there are actually fish in the lake other than blue gill. The swim beach is clean and there are areas of shade on the beach. Plenty of grills and picnic tables and a fee (not free) camping area as well. The historic mill offers free self guided walking tours or guided tours for a fee.

    A wonderfully amazing place. Beautiful grounds. Lots of folk, including families were out enjoying the path. Some jogging, some strolling, others biking. A really nice place to paddle a kayak or canoe which is what I did on this visit. Met a local kayak fisherman, Darryl, who told me this was one of his favorite places to paddle and fish in the area.

    We love going to Watkins Mill State Park! It's very beautiful. There is a nice trail for walking or biking. You can even use a stroller on it! The kids love throwing rocks in the lake. There are plenty of tables and bbq pits. We haven't stayed at the campgrounds or actually been to the Mill, yet, but we love the park!

    Great place to car camp. Campsites ranging from cement pads for campers to only grass without electricity for more simple camping. Just show up and pick a site, the super helpful camp site hosts will be around to take your booking. Bathrooms are close to every site and very clean. Nice walking trail around the entire lake with plenty to see. The historical buildings are a must see as the history of the area is very interesting and I had no idea how much went on there before I visited.

    Went camping with my family for 4 days had a great time. Toured the mill and house very neat. The lake with swim beach was the best.
