  • Great state park. Met some nice people which always makes for a better experience. Facilities are well maintained. Sites are way bigger than anything you'd get at a private resort and the tin shelters are welcome in the heat of the day. Lovely pier and boat launch area. Gets a little rowdy in the day use area but they're fairly removed from the campers. Like most state parks, there are two RV areas, 30 amp and 50 amp. Both are well kept with the 50 amp being a bit more spacious and worth the extra $5 per night to me. If you plan on using state parks for more than 7 to 10 days, get the annual state park pass, it's good value.
  • Amazing lake and park!! Absolutely a must visit. If at all possible, visit during the week during the off peak season. There is hardly anyone there and you feel like you have the park to yourself. It's a bit chilly but nothing an extra blanket, a good fire, or body heat can't fix!! Park officials are very friendly and helpful!!
  • This State Park is small but it packs a lot into its space. The workers are all very personable and the grounds are kept up very well. The new pier is first rate!
  • Absolutely stunning location. It's a joy to be here, to take in sights and to view. Works great for photoshoots, is a great bird seeing spot, has lots of historical info, and is romantic as well as a good swimming hole. Loved it so much!
  • Great park. I think paying by person is a little crazy. Paying by car would make more sense.
