  • Very fortunate to have a park so close. Nice camping, but some goofy rules. We pay for a sticker for a year but only get to use the whole park for 8 months because they close off the road. No snow to speak of this year so far, but road is still closed. Talked to a few people and they are not happy about this either. Open the back road for nature driving.
  • Great state park! The camping during the week was quiet and pleasant. Fire rings seemed rather new and bathrooms were consistently cleaned. Pool was nice but the "sand" was more like gravel and not friendly. Probably because someone wanted to save a few bucks by not bringing in real sand. Sand would have made it 5 stars. Plenty of easy hiking available. Would go again but not for the pool.
  • Great state park! Electricity only hook ups, nice and shaded spots, and really nice and clean bathrooms and showers. Man made sand bottom swimming area is great also. Area has many things to see and do.
  • Very nice open camp sites visited in fall. Plan on coming back in summer can not wait!
  • Beautiful prairie trails, although most of them are wide and heavily mowed.. Beautiful outlooks as well if you take the time to walk to them. Sadly, the river has a fecal coliform (bacteria) problem, so it's only nice to look at and not smell or touch. There's a lot of campsites with a lot of people as well, and it can get pretty noisy. But, overall, it's a nice park and a good place to camp for a night.
