  • We took the trail to the North Peak, which is 1.25 miles and 300' of vertical. Some sections were rather steep so we were glad that we had our hiking poles with us. There is a good view from the North...  more »
  • Went fishing while on business in the area and caught some pretty big trout. It was only 10 minutes away from the hotel I was staying at. I would definitely visit here again!  more »
  • There is much to explore and experience at the park year round. Well marked trails for those who prefer it and plenty of acreage of woods and mountain to get a workout while enjoying beautiful scenery...  more »

  • Awesome new trails have been added. A great place for the whole family. Camping, hiking, swimming and boating available. Very well maintained.
  • So.beautiful I can't wait to go back
  • Beautiful park. Was just there this past weekend. The only complaint I have is the dog poop all over the place, even on the walking paths. I just wanted to walk through, not dodge dog poop every ten steps.
  • Exceptionally nice and quiet State Park and campground. General parking for about 30-40 vehicles for walking, hiking, and boating access. About 30 large tent/RV sites, some with handicapped access. Coin operated hot showers available, running water, and toilet facilities. Open year-round with trails groomed for X-country skiing or snow shoeing.
  • Very quiet and peaceful,lots of hiking, just beautiful.
