  • We had a family cookout at the park. I recommend the walking trial. The park is beautiful and well kept. If you like to visit parks with water this a good choice.  more »
  • We met a group of people here for a picnic lunch. We were at a shelter right on the lake, it was very pretty. Our group of about 25 easily fit under the shelter with lots of room to put out food and d...  more »
  • I don't mind if people who want to buy big powerful fast boats (some people like to compensate), but at least have some common courtesy and sense when it comes to Public Water Recreational Areas. Good...  more »
  • We first went on a Friday, in July, which probably wasn't the best idea. Almost every site was filled. Wasn't too bad, but I would have preferred more privacy.. The next time we went we camped During the week and had the whole place to ourselves. It was such an amazing time having the raccoons all swarm our site because there wasn't anyone to scare them away. Such a good experience. The last time we went on Halloween because it was in the 70s and had one person beside us, we asked if we could move but they said we couldn't do that. Could have gone without their humming generator, but still made the best out of it. Moral of the story, if your a recluse, go during the week and check before you book if you have any neighbors. 😁
  • Great camping and boating! Fabulous staff and campground hosts! This is our "go to" spot, and our children, grandchildren and siblings enjoy it too!
  • Great place to swim fun for the whole family park workers were all friendly
  • This is a great park with a nice, wide boat ramp, although it does get busy. Cecil M. Hardin Reservior (Known to most as Raccoon Lake) has the best fishing anywhere, bar none. I caught a 20lb striped bass there a couple years ago! I can't remember ever getting skunked there, even on the worst fishing day. White bass are abundant, and we catch big catfish, largemouth bass, and crappie. I caught a 5lb largemouth right before the 20lb striper, which was the biggest bass I've ever caught. (Man, that was a heck of a day!) This is my favorite place to fish.
  • Done with Eagle Creek because of this place. Nice
