  • The park is beautiful with all the scenic hills and terrific views around the lake. Great place for family fun! Only drawback is the terrible condition of the roads in this park. All in all, still a great place to go!
  • Used to be such a vibrant park growing up. Now needs a lot of love and care. Please fix the roads and make this park beautiful again.
  • Haven't spent much time here, but watched the 2017 eclipse there and found it to be a very nice looking place. Swimming area, lots of hills and seemed to be some decent trails, though didn't get a chance to explore. Well maintained smaller park that seemed like a good place for from shore lake fishing as well.
  • Needs much attention. As does everything else under king rauners domain. Nice sites. Electric only with water available around the park. Dump station at entry to Hickory Hill campground. The road is in terrible shape. Hopefully it will actually get the needed, and long planned, fixes before next season. At least the plan was surveyed this summer. Fingers crossed! In spite of this we enjoy the time we spend there.
  • Great RV campground with nice sites, clean showers and bathrooms. Road is a little rough coming in and beach is closed but the rest of the park is great. Plenty of trails for walking and mountain biking. Highly recommend.
