  • I like this place. Yea, yea it is not backcountry by any stretch, but it is only about an hour away from the big city and when the water is high you can be at the big rock campground and right next...

  • We stopped here for a rest from our cross-country tour. The views are so beautiful and the park is well maintained. Great for a picnic or maybe and afternoon.

  • It was so beautiful here, love the wildlife & relaxing in the water was wonderful especially as it was in the high 90's. I can't wait to go back!
  • Beautiful and peaceful. We watched an amphibious tank take to the water -- great fun. It was nice to simply sit around the cabin doing absolutely nothing, unlike the busy-ness of today. We were right next to an osprey nest with three fledglings. Boy, we're they demanding! The photos weren't great. The ranger was very nice but was "hesitant" about open-carry. Smiles, but... Never had a problem with cops. He must have some "challenging" experiences in the past. So, give him some slack. The showers closest to the cabins did not work. At all. If you are a camper, the showers at the other end are satisfactory. It's not clear in the online description: bring your own gas or electric grill. Also, they do not permit cooking or eating in the structures. You have to use the picnic tables.
  • Fun trails. Water levels are super low because of the drought, but there's still plenty of space to hike and get out on the water a bit. Several camping areas and plenty of day use parking.
  • Echo State Park accommodates day use visits. I go to fish (trout and smallies), but many go to hang out on the expanded beaches now that the water levels have dropped so low. Portable potties only and be prepared to take a serious hike to get to them. Great sunsets.
  • The are where we ended up going was rocky and we had to hike a steep descend into the water and back up. The water was good, but there was algae and it was rocky in the water too, so definitely bring good water shoes. And if you plan on bringing coolers and canopies, be prepared for a hard in and out.
