  • Being in a State Park, I was really surprised at how run-down this campground was. The bath-houses are totally inadequate and need to be torn down and new ones built. The campsites are too close together and are poorly maintained. Run-off from the street drains right through the middle of the campsites (not just one, but many of them). They really need to do some work to improve the drainage and spread some gravel so the whole place doesn't turn into a mud hole when it rains. The only staff that I encountered was the one gentleman at check-in, and he was very friendly and tried to be helpful. The State Park itself is beautiful, but the campground is in dire need of some work.
  • Always a great day to get out and see some nature. Parknis clean and offers many different activities for the family. Restaurant at the docks offered decent burgers and fries, nice place to get out and go for a walk.
  • Beautiful little park. We camped right next to the lake and the night sky was magnificent! Our site was on the generously side and clean. We had a slight problem with our water hookup, I noticed the puddle around the post when we pulled in so I'm assuming the previous campers did also. This was reported it to a worker there but he seemed slightly appathic and no one came to check it or fix the problem. We ended up turning the hose off as I dislike leaks with water wastage and made do with our tank water. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked. The playground was well kept and well equipped. The lake was fun to hike around but I do not know how long the hike was. I felt the price ($38.00 per night and no senior discount was a little on the high side. This was the highest we paid for any state park we have visited yet.) was discouraging as it was not a full hookup site. (If this term puzzles you; full hookup means campers can hookup their rvs, camper, etc to electric, water and sewer.) We were in a elec/water site. If we had more time I would camp here again but in a slightly less expensive site.
  • Great scenery a view of the lake and golf course. Nice hiking trails. Close access to boat docks and marinas with restraunts. Nicely furnished cabins. Loved it!!
  • Beautiful place to hike. Plenty of shade made it great for our little man.
