  • Wonderful place to spend the day with children and also for those who want to camp. Can take food and beverages, including alcoholic beverages. Has barbecue in the Park also. The downside is I don't sell meals and the swimmer be small. The rest is wonderful. The fee is charged per car worth $ 7.

  • We loved it! It was very convenient for camping with the kids. There are restrooms cleaned daily, laundry, drinking water, firewood and ice for purchase. Coin-operated hot showers that felt like a blessing at the end of our camping. The rangers and the camp host were polite and helpful. No bears around so we didn't have to sweat it too much about the food being exposed. The lake was warm enough for swimming and a lot of fun! We will go again!
  • I love being outdoors. If you like being at a chill outdoor place thats good for barbequing and swimming while lounging around, highline is a reat place to be. The only downfall is that it can become crowded.
  • It's pretty nice but not sure if it's worth the drive. My kids loved the little beach. It is more for people who own boats.
  • What a tremendous disappointment. We checked in to this park over the weekend and found it to be exceedingly strict in all its rules, with unbelievably rude camp hosts. We had not even begun to unload our car in the cold rain when a man approached our us, did not introduce himself, and said "name?!" while staring at a clipboard. Turns out this is the camp host, who spent the entire weekend harassing us, from asking us where we were planning on putting our tents to micromanaging our parking, telling us to turn our music off when we were not playing music, and otherwise watching our quiet, respectful group like a hawk. The park is beautiful, to be sure, but the people who run it were apparently trained at the DMV. I will never camp here again and wouldn't recommend it to anybody.
  • Busy, but a great place to enjoy the water. I was also surprised that the Rangers gave us a hard time for not having a life jacket while on a SUP. Come on, we're adults and can swim. We don't need to have a life jacket.
