  • We love coming here, and have our annual Family Mayfield Lake (FML) trip here each year. I enjoy natural camping but with all of the kids and dogs this is the place to be. Great swimming, hiking, and fishing spots all around.
  • One of our favorite campgrounds. Every site wooded, clean. Safe swimming area and playground for kids. Great shore and boat fishing for dad. Dog friendly. Noisy and busy lake traffic on weekends so we camp Sunday through Friday.
  • Beautiful. Lots to explore. Easy bike trail. Cool cabins.
  • Awsome place to go camping in an RV, Tent, or rent the new Cabin. Best fishing is done on the water. Deer to see.
  • Very disappointed with the attendant: I was lied to and treated with disrespect. The park, however, is BEAUTIFUL.
