  • One of the best RV campgrounds I've ever been to! Spacious sites... Excellent separation between sites... All paved access... Level sites... Beautiful lake... Clean bathrooms & showers... Only knock is that the bathrooms were a bit small for the size of the campground... Highly recommended!!!
  • Super nice park. Campsite right on the water. Boat ramp, nice trails. Large camp sites. Water, sewer included. I have Virgin Mobile and have full coverage.
  • We live swimming at the Mayfield Lake here as well as their campsites. Hopefully, next year we can get a reservation to one of the cabins. Definitely need to reserve things asap, WAY ahead of time since they fill up pretty fast. In any case, this is one of our favorite campsites to spend summer in!
  • My boyfriend and I stayed in camping spot number 86. Could not ask for a prettier spot, very respectful neighboring campers, gorgeous scenery and probably the cleanest well-maintained restrooms of any state park I've ever been to. Highest recommendation from myself and boyfriend. Just a note I am visiting from the state of Illinois
  • This isnt so much about the park as it is their "boat launch. It has just two ramps and you usually have to clear stumps and debris before you can do any launching. Parking is about 100 yards or so away so you'll be trekking a bit back and forth. The only great point is that it's pretty out of the way so you usually aren't battling with others to get launched.
