  • We're staying at this "resort" for a two night stay. As state parks go, this one won't be on our repeat list and we would not recommend it in its current condition. One of the reasons we usually enjoy...  more »

  • Had a wonderful time kayaking and fishing. Made this a favorite birthday!
  • Beautiful and serene!!! The park staff are friendly and helpful and the accommodations are vintage excellence.
  • We came here for the mountain bike trails. Lakeside Loop would have rated very good, except the downed trees on the trail had us off the bike an estimated 20 times. A few we could move off the trails with the two of us, but most need someone with a chain saw. Needs maintenance; unfortunately in a state of neglect.
  • Too many options to list. Worth a visit on its own.
  • Peaceful when I go in the fall. The cabins are very nice, the rooms are nice. Lots of deer. Well maintained. Lodge Great Hall is great in the fall; fireplace, billiards, good chairs for reading. The lake is about 13 feet low this year. Didn't try the skeet or golf.
