  • Taking a canoe or kayak down village creek is a treat. Many white sand bars to stop and enjoy. Village Creek is beautiful. 
  • When we arrived, part of the park had been closed do to damage from a flood. That part we did not see. The campground we were at was clean and quiet. The spaces to set up the tent were flat, level, an...  read more »
  • We camped here to celebrate the end of school. We knew they had flooding in the area before we drove down. The canoeing, swimming, and trails were closed due to flooding. We almost had the park to our...  read more »
  • We visit often and never had any issues. The park staff are always awesome and very helpful. The park is small but that makes for a nice time. The cabin is wonderful. It has fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking with an outditter, bike and hiking trails, etc... I can't say more wonderful things about the staff. I do appreciate that special feeling you get when you check in, like you are the only camper there. We have stayed in a travel trailer and cabin there. I would recommend this park.
  • I do love this little park. After reading the other reviews I felt compelled to write a few lines. I come here often to hike and relax. It is a small park and does not pretend to be otherwise. The facilities offered are in line with the overall accommodations offered. I take severe offense to the post by hflechtner1 - you state that you were disrespected and treated badly. As a seasoned camper and someone who frequently visits all State Parks I am continually confused by this attitude when it comes to those of you who decide to break the posted rules and later scream foul treatment. Rule 1: no gathering or collecting of wood is EVER allowed so your "collecting sticks" was clearly against the rules. Rule 2: ALL pets must remain on leash at all times so the "demand for your 8 year old lab" to be on lead was clearly you deciding, again, to break the rules. Rule 3: no alcoholic beverages, EVER. Being asked to remove all alcohol shows you continued to ignore the rules. Grow up and face the consequences of your decisions and stop throwing the blame where it does not belong. I give three stars not as a reflection of the state of the park but as a reflection of activities offered compared to other, larger parks with more money to work with. If you want more from your parks - donate time and money. Otherwise, take care of what we have and treasure it for what it is and not what you want it to be.
  • Showers were limited. Two portable toilets. Camp site space limited. Have to walk to campsite. Not a lot of activities. Bugs get in people's tents. Bovey scout ranch was 4 stars they have more activities and more space if this camp wants to be popular they need to step there game up
  • After a 6 hr drive to the campsite we finally started setting up. We spent 4 hrs lugging our carload of camping gear to our site 300 yards from our vehicle. Around 2pm we collected the small sticks/brush from our campsite and started a fire to make lunch. A ranger approached us and demanded we put our 8yr old Labrador retriever on a 4ft leash which he had to stay on while we were on property. He told us we could not use dead wood on the ground to make any fires (there was no burn ban) and that if we didn't get rid of all alcohol on property he would kick us off our campsite. He gave us two choices....he would issue a ticket for all three violations to my boyfriend and I ($500 for each offense) he told us that we had one hour to pack and leave property or else the police would be called. I have never in all my years of camping experienced such disrespect and insensitivity. This ranger gives them all a bad name. Please save yourself the trouble and pick another park.
  • Peacful and simple
