Cooked a lunch with the family at one of the grills and enjoyed amazing weather with a gorgeous view. I highly recommend having a family picnic here. Beautiful lake overall. more »

We went to the state park after having difficulty finding another place to stay. I am so impressed with what the state has done with this park. The rv parking areas are well graveled, level, and very large. There are numerous trails to explore. Because we were here in Nov. part of the park was closed and electric was all that was available which was all we needed. The only drawback is if you come in at night, as we did, the park is really dark and was hard to see where you might be able to pull in your rig. The other concern I had was the showerhouse. It was a great size with numerous showers (minimal cost), but was not as clean as it could have been. I don't know if that was due to it being off season. My husband said the men's bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite awhile. There were also washers and dryers. I would love to come back here in the summer and spend more time, it is a GREAT campground/state park.
If you love quiet and relaxation this is the State Park for you! Secluded spots with spectacular views of the lake. Night skies full of stars! Love it!
Love this RV park! Sites are well spaced and covered by trees. Uniformed Park Rangers patrol keeping things quiet and safe. Staff very friendly and helpful. The lake, trails, and views are outstanding. I can't wait to visit again!
Wonderful place to experience God's fingerprint! Beautifully maintained. Nice & friendly staff, at the park office. Stunning views!
Always great fishing. Rangers are knowledgeable and polite. Dawna and I landed a nice catfish... 21 pounds!!!
