    Kinda small for a state park but really well maintained. Park staff are very friendly. Stayed in a shelter which was clean and comfortable. Be sure to take extra sheets to pin up to the inside of the window if you want privacy. Wife said the bathrooms were good.

    A small park with a lot to offer! Don't confuse it with the Fort Parker restoration down the road, they're not related. The state park has camping, fishing, hiking, canoeing, paddle boats, swimming... It's a great place to come and stay or just spend the day. Stop at the ranger station and talk to them, they're very friendly and helpful. There is also a historic cemetery inside the park that's fun to explore.

    Loved camping here. Lots of wildlife to view. Bald eagle and barred owl were a couple of exciting sightings this trip.

    Great small park. Narrow campsite road and small turnaround at end. Beautiful sunsets. Quaint little park.

    We come here to camp every Spring Break. Love the shelters!
