  • We have been camping here for 35 years and it has always been a great park. But in the past few years they have had some fabulous upgrades in their Rv spaces. But if you're tent camping or in a motor ...  more »

  • Piney Shores is simply beautiful; with either lake side or lake view camping. 50 amp service, with water and sewage. Day area's are clean, well kept with multiple boat ramp throughout the park. There is a nice 2 mile hiking-biking trail through the main area's with other hiking only trails available. We will return.
  • Solid state park, staff is extremely friendly and helpful, particularly in the various programs they offer. Lake has swimming, a very nice fishing pier and canoe rentals. There is also a Recreation Hall and a pool, though the pool was not open when we were there in March. Park store nearby has you covered for bait and supplies, though the last time we stayed at a campsite firewood and ice were rather scarce. Campsites for overnight stay vary in distance from the lake, there's a few primaries sites and some full power, water loops that are closer to the water. If you're looking for a day trip there are plenty of places for a nice picnic near the lake, very picturesque. Campsites are a little smaller and closer together than a lot of the other area state parks we've camped at, at least in the area we stayed (Hercules Club Loop). Bathrooms/showers are standard state park fare, could use a little more regular attention. Also noted that markers for trails could use some updating (or just weren't available). Overall a good park and we will camp there again.
  • Stayed several days this month. We are in a truck camper and use a tent. Had a nice sand pad for tent as well as long back in spot. I'm handicapped did not stay at handicap spots as we did in other parks. Only bad thing was upper shower head in handicap stall had no water coming out. We did get robbed while going to get supplies. A chair, atlas and book were taken and my handicap shower chair too! We have stayed in several state parks and never felt we had to pack up all our belongings.
  • The newly redone loop is fantastic. They didn't upgrade the facilities for some reason, only the campsites. The ones by the lake are awesome! The ranger comes through often. Will definitely be back.
  • Let's begin with the pluses: + Great space for family picnicking + Kayaking, boating, fishing, tubing all can be done on the huge lake + Overnight camping available, yes! + Place very calm and serene + Staff are friendly and courteous Just a few minuses: - lake deep in most sections for small kids - not enough shady spots for picnicking along the lake - pool wasn't working when we visited
