  • If you are looking for a beautiful spot to camp in a tent or RV, this is the place. We like to fish and so we asked for a spot near the lighted fishing pier. RV spots 22 and 23 are closest to the pier...  more »

  • Great park for fishing and camping. Only complaint is the restrooms are TERRIBLE and nasty. I've camped at over 12 sites. Dirtiest. I'd give it 4-5 stars of restrooms were clean like all other state parks.
  • Lake and traffic was easy pace. Our site was at lake edge. Easy for boat boarding and exiting of family. Only issue we had was people walking through tent site to get to the water. Which was common. Lighted fishing pier!
  • Awesome place for a quiet relaxing day with the family, even when it's "crowded" your never too close for comfort
  • Very big and a good place to take the family and spend the day.. A lot of fun
  • Shaded tent sites. Great fishing in number 74. Awesome
