  • Stayed here Labor day weekend and it was really nice. Typical for a holiday full of dogs and kids but the campground is small so not to crazy. Hiked, biked and paddled the lake and river. Nothing bad ...  read more »
  • Yes we knew it was July and yes it was hot. We might could have overlooked the grass being unmowed and ankle high and even knee high in some areas because of recent rains if we had been met with atten...  read more »

  • Definitely a hidden gem. Small camp area but very close to lake. All staff members are very friendly and knowledgeable. Our favorite event was the bat program on Saturday night. The park ranger who gave the class on bats had extensive knowledge and was very informative. I have previously had a bat class at Carlsbad Cavern in New Mexico but this one was much more personal and more informative. Although camp area was small there were plenty of trees to provide natural shade. I will for sure come back soon Very Pet Friendly**
  • Very beautiful park. Every campsite is beautiful. Not a bad spot in the whole park. Fishing is great and you can rent canoes, kayaks and paddleboats. Great swimming area.
  • Wonderful state park with friendly host rangers. Shelters were clean and the walking trails are easy to follow. Don't forget to bring paper and charcoal to do headstone rubbings.
  • A nice little hidden gem we stumbled upon. Super quiet, clean camping sites, clean restrooms, friendly park rangers, fishing pier, boat launch, and canoe/kayak rentals. The "fort" isn't actually located in the park, but is just a couple of miles down the road. It does cost an extra $2 to visit the fort. Well worth it in my opinion.
  • We had Mother's Day at Ft. Parker, staff and facilities were outstanding. The weather was overcast so we rented the covered pavilion. Had a great time.
