  • Made our second visit to Locust Lake State Park to camp on the weekend after Labor Day. Not many campers on Thursday evening, but more arrived Friday. Staff is friendly and helpful. Park is kept clean...  more »
  • I especially love walking around the lake on the trail which is very beautiful. A nice place to visit for a few hours and visit with family who camped there.  more »
  • The days were beautiful and fun. However, they did not enforce the "quiet hours" and someone played really loud music from 3 to 7am at the tent camping area. I couldn't believe they let people get awa...  more »

  • I grew up camping here most of my life, and continue the legacy now that we have children of our own. Used to be very clean, reliably safe and always event packed summers here. But it seems the last few years haven't been the best for this park. I don't think the roads have been paved or resurfaced in over a decade, and the upkeep of the individual sites is continuing to decline. I really enjoyed this place as a child and really wish my child has the chance to enjoy the cleanliness and fun packed playgrounds, beach, boat rental, and all around great American outdoors i did as a child! Love how they added electric to a few sections of the campground a few years back, but left most without. That way you can choose your "level of difficulty" and still enjoy the park. I hope for the best to come for locust lake and look forward to seeing any new additions or renovations!
  • Took my two huskies on a hike through the woods. Very diverse trails and multiple trail heads. Conditions were slightly muddy but that was after snow had just melted. Pretty good for most beginner's, terrain is not that difficult. Nice views and definitely enjoyed the natural scenery.
  • I've visited Locust Lake since I was a child and have always loved it. The park has always been very clean and a great place for families to visit. It's a nice place to simply walk around, have a picnic, or camp for the weekend. I will continue to visit in the future and hope it stays the way it has been! PS: get some ice cream while you're there!
  • We’ve been camping here since I was a little kid, and I love it here. The bathhouses are really nice and usually pretty clean, there’s usually not much of a wait at all either. They’re pretty well located so you can walk or drive, whichever your prefer. The playgrounds are really nice and unique, even fun for adults. We go kayaking, swimming, bike riding, walking, running, jogging, anything you want to do you can. Lots of memories sitting around the fire and getting ice cream at the camp store. I’ve got a hoodie from the store as well and it’s the most comfortable one I own. Definitely recommend to anyone, and it’s especially great for families.
  • What a great day for a walk. Met a lot of nice people. A wonderful place to walk your 🐕 dog.
