  • One of the best parks in the Midwest. I had the pleasure of growing up nearby. Activities for all seasons. Lots of ADA accessibility features added to the park. Great campground with RV pads. Every major national store is just 5 miles away. The i-90 tollway is close to the park as well. Boats and canoes for rent.
  • It's a small state park, as state parks go, but it's nice due to location and is still pretty big. I liked the camp grounds and the electricity provided at each site. The nature was nice and the hikes were nice. All in all, I'd go back if a had the chance.
  • Tent camped over Labor Day weekend and the park was near full capacity the guy said when we checked in. There were no more primitive sites so we snagged an electric site. We stayed in the 400 section and it was a beautiful and peaceful stay. Clean bathrooms, water readily available, little restaurant with ice cream and a general store type place. You can rent paddle boats, kayaks, canoes, fishing boats, etc. Will definitely come back again.
  • Beautiful place. Not recommended for serious hikers as its pretty flat but its great for walking especially if you prefer to walk in actual forest trails and not bike paths. Very scenic. I think the whole walk around the entire lake ia about 5miles? Don't quote me on it. Its worth the drive especially in the fall (great scenery with beautiful colors). I saw it offers camp sites as well as children camps (saw the are not sure on how who or when). Ran into a little area with an ice cream parlor, looked tasty but we did not try. Lots of people with dogs and kids. Biking trails are available and are outlined on the maps. Great way to spend a sunday!
  • This park is very big and very pretty. You don't hear any traffic from the surrounding area which is nice compared to places like Lowden State Park. The tent only camping is pretty cheap for a weekend and it's nice to have the option to not pay for unused electric hookup. The camp sites near the water are fun but the fishing isn't really good in that section. There's also a bike path that goes right through site 60. This park is only an hour away from me so I usually go here at least once a year.
