  • An extremely large and very old oak dominates the park and is worth a look all on its own. Make sure to read the timeline next to it... 
  • $5 per person fee to enter this State Park. Mostly fishermen and some kayakers but we had been before and thought it would be fun for SUPing. Definitely not the kind of choppy conditions we saw in Roc...  read more »
  • Has an absolutely fantastic oak tree, well worth the trip. Can have mosquitos certain times of the year. 
  • Nice camping sites with lots of trees, nice bathrooms, and friendly staff. But, I want to know if there are any Parks that do not allow dogs. We had a neighbor that had 7 dogs! That's right....7 dogs! The people across from us had 4 and the other neighbor had a yapper. When one would start barking....they would all bark. Needless to say, we saw a lot of wild life around us but NONE would come close because of the dogs. Also, the marina was awful!!!! Fishermen were cleaning their fish and throwing the carcass' back in the water. There were about 40-50 of them in the water and all around. It was awful! Not to mention that they were rude as well. Only 2 ramps for boats. On more than one occasion I was backing my boat up only to have another boater whip in front of me and look at me like....Oh well!
  • Very nice park where you can camp by the bay or stay in the woods the sites in the woods give you a nice secluded feel we have stayed three times so far and enjoy every stay. the restrooms are very clean and the park is very quiet and peaceful. great place for a weekend getaway.
  • Great place for fishing. Especially, if you are beginner as a fisherman. Higher chance of getting fish during sunset and sunrise. You can fish at night too because the pier has lights! There is arrangement for fish cleaning too. The premium camping spots are good for RV, not for tent because those places are too windy. The woody campsites are good but there are lots of mosquitoes. Do not forget to take mosquito repellent with you. The tent will be too hot to sleep at night during summer and beginning of fall. Cleanliness and all other maintenance are great!
  • It's was wonderful had great experience with our youth group. Thanks you all for having us .The camping was great, the fishing was wonderful, the site seeing was beautiful ,the showers are good they could be better with out the frog wanting to wash your hair .Other than that it was great.☺☺☺☺☺☺
  • Beautiful park, but as another person said, the barking dogs took away from our experience. The site across from us had 4 dogs chained up outside and liked to bark in unison. It seems fewer and fewer RV campgrounds are allowing dogs, and this is unfortunate. To all dog owners who bring them RV'ing, please don't be "that guy" and be considerate of your neighbors.
