  • Great little park. Nice hiking trails around the lake and river. Our campsite was right next to the main road, but other than that it was a peaceful area. I would go back again.
  • Beautiful park. Very scenic. Friendly staff and clean facilities
  • Not as nice as when I came here as a kid, but what is these days. I heard tell that the lake was over run with algae, but when we were there, the lake was a bit muddy, but otherwise lovely! Great place for over 45 years!!!
  • I enjoy fishing here. It's very nice and relaxing.
  • Wonderful little state park. This was a very nice little state park, there is lots to do here. I nice little beach to enjoy, hiking, fishing, camping, boating (small electric motors only), two playgrounds, and lots of day usage areas. There are two campgrounds, one for tents with non-electric sites, and one for larger campers with electric sites. The "good" campsites with privacy and shade are not as prevalent here, but there wasn't a lot of people camping on a beautiful father's day weekend, so I can't imaging it ever gets too busy. Kayak the lake was very nice and the beach was fun and not too crowded. We had a wonderful time camping here and will defiantly be coming back.
